LUNCHLINES ~ Edith Cowan University
Guest: Jenny de Garis
Date: Friday 19th September
Time: 12.30 - 1.30
It’s a decade since Jenny de Garis was a sessional lecturer in Creative
Writing, Language and Literature at ECU and she now enjoys leading
residential writing workshops in national parks and creative interactions
with artworks. Her M.A,”Two Books of Poetry and a Dream about
Listening” - ECU’s first in Creative Writing - included an exploration of the
processes of writing in response to paintings by Arthur Boyd. The
interest in ‘poetry as translation’ fed into her recently self - published
book, Dance of Light - poems and photographs in response to the bush
and site-specific sculptures in a reserve of Perth’s Beeliar Wetlands.
Jenny’s poems have found space in newspapers and journals of many
kinds and in a range of places. At Lunchlines she will read and talk
about the writing of a selection of them.
