  • Location: City Campus
  • Starting: 23 July 2018

Whether you’re a complete beginner or have already taken your first steps towards writing poetry, this course will develop your craft.

It’ll help you create and edit poems, considering form, tone and rhythm, and have the option of selecting your best poem to be published in a limited edition pamphlet.

This practical course is designed to support writers in developing their craft, and is open to beginners and more experienced writers who are new to poetry.

There’ll be some readings in the workshops but there is also scope, if participants are willing, to arrange a public reading of the work.

What will I gain?

By the end of the course you’ll have developed the confidence and skills to continue writing poems independently, or perhaps want to take further studies in the future.
