Poetry can sometimes seem mysterious and intimidating. But you can write it – and this online course aims to expand your skills and confidence. Each month, participants receive a brief prompt to help them start a new poem, which they will then show to the rest of the group. Andy will provide precise, constructive suggestions for improvement, along with some ideas to expand your reading and writing practice. All participants are also encouraged to give feedback. This online course actively encourages sharing of your work with your cohort as well as with the tutor.

You will:

  • gain confidence in yourself as a writer of poetry

  • try some new poetic forms and techniques

  • discover some new poets that will enhance your own work

  • improve your ability to read other people's poems and give feedback

  • have five poems ready to submit for publication


Pieces of up 80 lines or 300 words due 11:55pm Mondays 31 January, 28 February, 28 March, 25 April, 30 May
