“Not only was Larkin a great poet but he was also a talented amateur photographer. The relationship between the two art forms is rich and complicated, as Larkin knew well. In this creative-writing workshop we’ll explore Larkin’s poetry and his photography included in the New Eyes Each Year exhibition as the starting point for thinking and writing about the photographic image.

Please bring a family album, or a selection of photographs, so you can write your way into your own pictures of ‘a past that no one now can share’ (Larkin). John Wedgwood Clarke is a poet, lecturer, and presenter of the BBC4 documentary Through the Lens of Larkin. His second poetry collection, Landfill, is published in September 2017.
