Encountering the Unconscious through Expressive Writing

Join poet Ivy Ireland as she explores methods of integrating unconscious elements of the psyche into the process of writing poetry. The focus of this workshop will be on practical writing exercises using automatic and expressive writing techniques, while also looking at examples of artistic inspiration in the work of prominent poets.

Ivy’s divergent career paths have included bookstore owner, magician’s assistant, harpist, cabaret performer, writer and lecturer in Creative Writing. Ivy’s literary awards include the Australian Young Poet Fellowship, the Harri Jones Memorial Prize, the Thunderbolt Prize, the Newcastle Poetry Prize local award, and she was the runner-up in the UC International Poetry Prize.

Ivy completed her Ph.D. in Creative Writing at the University of Newcastle and her poetry, essays and reviews have been widely published in journals and anthologies.
