Overheard in a Tower Block and How to Write Poetry

Hay Festival 2018, 

In this interactive and fun session the audience will join in to create a range of different poems from silly similes to super sonnets and even delve into personification using the “Make It Human Personification Machine” that has been known to make boots sneeze and tomatoes blush. Joseph’s inventive event mixes poems from his Carnegie Prize-nominated poetry anthology Overheard in a Tower Block with activities from his debut non-fiction book How to Write Poems.
