Call And Response With Rishi Dastidar
Sun 8 October
This event takes place at the Sun Inn, Marlborough Road, Coate, Swindon SN3 6AA
We’ve all been to workshops where we’ve been inspired by other poems, maybe visual art too, and then written in response to them. So what happens when we use pop songs instead? That’s the very simple premise behind ‘Call and Response’, where some great music will hopefully provide great inspiration for writing poems. A mashup of melodies and an esoteric playlist crossing different eras and genres will hopefully get you in the rhythm to write. Just bring some paper, pencils – and your ears.
Rishi Dastidar is a fellow of The Complete Works, a consulting editor at The Rialto magazine, a member of the Malika’s Poetry Kitchen collective, and also serves as a chair of the London-based writer development organization Spread The Word. His debut collection Ticker-tape is published by Nine Arches Press.
