Description

Maths Poetry Workshop

Join poets Rebecca Kosick and Harry Baker for an engaging and interactive workshop connecting maths and poetry. Accessible and open to all.

Is it possible to write a maths poem? Undoubtedly, mathematics has the capacity to express complex and abstract ideas, but is it possible to convey the kinds of complex and abstract thought more often found in poetry than in mathematical notation? Is one able to express the small joy of a cup of tea, the closeness of an intimate relationship, the nuanced humour of a shared joke through mathematical formulations? Open to writers of all levels/backgrounds.
