Dream and Vision: Poetry workshop with Sean O’Brien

The experience of falling asleep, dreaming, dream-visions, and waking, lend themselves perfectly to the poetic form; where daytime and night-time, dream and reality, often meet. 

In this workshop, Sean will show you how to make the crossing in either direction between waking and dreaming, armed only with a pen and paper. All he asks if for you to bring your curiosity and an open mind!
