Golden Point Award 2017 Workshop Series – Chinese Poetry

Description

好诗迷人之处于何?写组诗时,是否有一些据说可吸引比赛评审目光的必杀技?过于专注于这些功利原素是否反而使诗歌最后的成品,失去了某种文学性

本土作坊将通过比较金笔奖历届的首奖和其他得奖诗作(中文为主),与出席者探讨不同佳构的得与失。所谓得失寸心知,讲者也将点出诗作在不同层面,所展现的创意和突破处。这些为打算参赛者,提供一些有用的思路

What makes good poetry with literary worth? What constitutes the elements of sequence poems that will win the hearts and minds of an audience? Are there really certain styles that make a set of poems work and therefore "award-winning"?

This session attempts to, through comparing and close-reading selected works of past Golden Point Award winning poetry entries of poetry especially in the Chinese category, discuss with the participants what works and what does not. The workshop will highlight how innovation in the various layers of the poems is crucial in conceptualising, rewriting and the final touch up of the entries. The session might also provide some useful inputs for participants with preliminary ideas for their poetry entries.
