2pm – 4pm
Atar will work with participants to create an initial response Esau would have made as a starting point for a poem. We’ll look at examples of other bible poems and explore how they contrast with traditional attempts to explain difficult stories. This will be followed by reading and sharing aloud work created on the day, plus a discussion of any other bible stories people want to discuss as problematic and whether bible commentators do or do not teach the bible as “an axe to break the sea of ice within us” in the words of Franz Kakfa.
Depending on time, there will be another opportunity to write a poem on a bible story of your own choosing and read and share before we conclude the workshop.
Workshops require a minimum of 8 for us to run. We will confirm to all participants as early as possible once confirmed numbers are reached.
