Who is Stevie?

The workshop will focus on the enigma of Stevie Smith, her status as ‘outsider’; on the range and voices of her poetry, and her life as a Palmers Green poet with a formidable national reputation. For some of the time, participants will use Stevie Smith ‘example’-poems as inspiration for writing their own pieces. Stevie Smith said, ‘Man is alone in his carapace. Poetry is a strong way out.’

Note: In September 2002, Katherine Gallagher was Co-Organiser with Palmers Green Bookshop Manager, Joanna Cameron, of the Palmers Green Stevie Smith Centenary Festival ‘Ten Days with Stevie Smith’.
