Caroline Bird: The Brightness of a New Page at Verve Poetry Festival

'The brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.' - Rainer Maria Rilke.

People talk about the fear of the blank page. Turn this thought upside down - the blankness is the best bit. The blankness is vital, it's the 'continuous I don't know' that births the poem. How do we trust nothingness? Unlearn in order to encounter? Come and discover some new poems inside the radiant blankness.

Tickets for this workshop are £22.50/£15.00 and can be booked via the festival website

Caroline's forthcoming collection The Air Year will be published in February.
