Quantum Poetics - unorthodox poetry with some laughs
As part of Dumfries & Galloway Wild Science Family MAYHEM! Day, I've been asked to provide a means of finding the poetry in science.
I've enjoyed myself and invented Quantum Poetics (well I borrowed the title) - two fun-seeking and exploratory short workshops aimed at guiding scientists to the poetry that lurks in pendulums, and poets to the thrills to be had from theoretical physics. But no doctorates are required – just curiosity and a sense of adventure!
I'll be there to help participants find their way into making a short poem inspired by science, using appropriately ‘MAYHEM! Day’ unorthodox and experimental techniques. Expect both laughter and some deadly serious creativity.
The workshops are at: 11am – 12 noon and 1.30pm – 2.30pm. Free entry (age 14 to 104) but please book (firstname.lastname@example.org ) as places on the workshops will be limited.
