Poetry is an elusive thing. So this online course aims to expand your skills and confidence, whatever your level of experience. 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.
- When: Starts 18 July. Poems of up to 80 lines due 18 July, 22 August, 19 September, 24 October, 21 November.
