There are no rules in poetry, which means dialogue with other poets and discussion of your drafts is vital to developing your own sense of poetic form and style. In this course, you’ll learn to draft poems while forming a community with other poets working in a range of different ways, under the expert guidance of Elena Gomez. After a day-long workshop on drafting, you’ll submit poems and receive feedback each month.
- When: Workshop held on Sunday 25 February, 10am-4pm; Submission deadlines for poems of up to 80 lines due Tuesdays 9 April, 14 May, 11 June
- Where: Online
- With: Elena Gomez
