Voices in the Plural
This free poetry-writing workshop, devised in response to Call Me Human, will be facilitated by Edinburgh-based poet Tanatsei Gambura. Participants are invited to consider the pluriverse of languages available to them and the different worlds opened up by each language. The possibilities and limitations of bilingual or multilingual imaginaries will come into focus, as well as writer W.E.B du Bois’ theory of ‘double-consciousness’. This workshop is suitable for participants who speak more than one language and self-identify as ‘thinking in different voices’. No poetry- writing experience is required.
Access: The workshop will be delivered in English as a majority consideration, not as an attempt to privilege the English language.

Tanatsei Gambura is a poet and cultural practitioner. She is the author of Things I Have Forgotten Before, her debut pamphlet by Bad Betty Press.
