Emerging possibilities: making poetry with Sally Ann Murray (Part 1)

It’s a new year and many poets have already started writing new poems. If you are reading writerly advice and researching how poetry works, hoping to grow your own artistic and aesthetic sensibilities, look no further than the AVBOB Poetry Competition blog! There you will find informative and educational articles to enrich and inspire your poetry writing.

This month we share the first of a two-part article offering rich input from creative writing teacher, Prof Sally Ann Murray, aimed specifically at students in tertiary education and those wanting a deep dive to develop their poetry skills. Prof Murray served as the Chair of the English Department at the University of Stellenbosch from 2015 to 2020. She is an award-winning writer with poetry, short stories and a novel under her belt. Sally Ann is widely published as a poet (including on the AVBOB website!) and her third poetry collection, Otherwise Occupied (Dryad 2019), was nominated for a 2020 South African Literary Award.
