Playing with form and language

GENRE: Poetry
Lumb Bank

You will be encouraged to explore a diversity of poetic forms and uses of language, such as open form, collage and juxtaposition. Your tutors will bring to bear their background in what is often referred to as the UK’s innovative poetry scene, introducing you to the approaches of British and American experimental poets as a means of encouraging you to play and take risks in your own work. In this wide-open (but also carefully structured) course, your tutor will help you explore some of the many ways of setting off into the unknown, and returning enriched, wiser, changed. Suitable for poets who would like to explore innovative poetic techniques, throw over old habits, or push their work further.

Single room price: £760
Shared room price: £710
