Katherine Gallagher to present a Stevie Smith workshop at the Charroux Literary Festival August 2015

Charroux Literary Festival

Katherine Gallagher will be presenting a workshop ‘Not waving but drowning’* based on the work  and life of the poet Stevie Smith.  Thursday 27th August 2015 10.30-12.30. Katherine comments that Smith is heartbreakingly alert, sad, witty, funny, and has an enormous range of poems from the comic to the tragic to the fantastical. She engages with myths and fairy tales, always roaming from the bizarre to the tragic.
