28. Workshop: Milena Williamson: Writing the Witch

Mon 3 Jul 2023
10:00am - 12:00pm | Heritage Centre - Event has now taken place.

This workshop will give a brief overview of historical witch persecution before turning to the proliferation of witch poetry in the past ten years. Discuss poems by Rebecca Tamás, Claire Askew and more. Write poems inspired by the witch, investigating how this figure can help challenge cis-heteropatriarchy and centre experiences of gender and sexuality, feminism and social justice.  Milena Williamson recently completed her PhD in poetry at the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s University Belfast. She is currently the Ciaran Carson Writing and the City Fellow at QUB. She has received the Eric Gregory Award and the Ireland Chair of Poetry project award. Her debut pamphlet, Charm for Catching a Train, was published by Green Bottle Press in 2022.
