There are a lot of things about being a poet that they don’t teach on more traditional courses. How exactly might you put a collection together? Why are there so many forms with intimidating names and which one is right for my poem? From practical performance skills to organisational tools, we’re going to cover everything they don’t teach you.
A lot of it is simply that poetry can be daunting. We want to empower budding poets with the tools they think are scary but really aren’t at all.
If you haven’t written poetry before but always wanted to, or if you simply want to level-up your skills, knowledge and confidence, then this is the course for you.
Workshops will take place in video conference format, and all participants will be sent all relevant handouts and resources before and after sessions.
You’ll learn together for six weeks in small groups, joining us via Zoom for live two-hour workshops each week.
