Please note: Entry to this course is by application only. If you would like to join please send a submission of three poems to firstname.lastname@example.org If you book online before applying we cannot guarantee that you will be granted entry to the course.
This advanced course will focus primarily on developing your current work-in-progress, including individual poems and poems-in-sequence, through reading, discussion, feedback, re-drafting and discussion of ‘motives’ and direction. Weekly writing tasks, plus occasional focuses on a particular practitioner/poet/book, or a tangential-but relevant session will engender fresh thinking. .
10 weekly sessions on Wednesdays 6.45pm – 8.45pm, starts 23 May. There will be no class on 30 May, and the final session will be on 25 July.
All classes will be in our new offices at 1 Dock Offices, Surrey Quays Road, Canada Water, SE16 2XU. The venue is 2-minute walk from Canada Water Station. Take the Lower Road exit onto Surrey Quays Road, cross over Deal Porters Way, and the Dock Offices are on the left.
