On 23-24 February 2019, Worple’s co-director Peter Carpenter is speaking and leading two sessions at the Royal Academy of Arts’ weekend-long art history and creative writing course The art of poetry and the poetry of art. In this creative writing course, participants are invited to join leading poets, writers and artists in exploring the history of the rich relationship between art and poetry, as inspiration for writing their own poems about works in the Academy’s galleries.
Peter Carpenter has taught creative writing for many organisations including the Arvon Foundation and the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival. His work has included stints as Creative Writing Fellow at the University of Reading and as a Visiting Fellow at the University of Warwick. His chapter on creative writing (‘Singing Schools and Beyond’) appeared in the O.U.P. Handbook of Contemporary British and Irish Poetry; he is currently writing a series of articles on this subject for The English Association. His ‘New and Selected Poems’, Just Like That, (Smith/Doorstop) came out in 2012, and Peace Camp (Maquette) in 2015.
