La Machine à poèmes

Comment ça s’écrit, une poésie? Viens faire le plein d’idées rigolotes avec Juliette Saumande, une auteure jeunesse française qui vit à Dublin. Juliette a un tas de trucs et astuces à partager avec les poètes novices et expérimentés pour écrire des poèmes sur tout (et peut-être n’importe quoi). Ensemble, on jouera avec les sons, les lettres et les mots, et on se fabriquera une boîte à outils poétiques pour devenir de vraies machines à poèmes!

What do you need to write a poem? Find serious inspiration and serious ideas in this seriously silly poetry workshop with French children’s writer Juliette Saumande. We will play with letters, sounds and words to write poems about everything and anything. This workshop is for experienced wordsmiths and newbies alike, as we will build together our poetry toolkit together, one game at a time.
