POETRY SHORT COURSE

Getting poems done

Monday November 2nd - Thursday November 5th 2020

Lumb Bank

If you are having trouble getting ideas down and finished, then this is the course for you. Studying a diverse range of poems and their techniques, we will create many first drafts. We will then take those first drafts through an editing process to the finished poem. Perfect for those who are just starting out, haven’t produced poems in a while, or are trying to extend their body of work, this rigorous – yet fun – course will take your writing to the next level. Close reading, writing sessions and tutor feedback will be the main focus of this well-structured week, dedicated to your poetry.

Single room price: £560
