Advanced Poetry Workshop with Sasha Dugdale

Advanced Poetry Workshop with Sasha Dugdale

Develop your work-in-progress through discussion and feedback in an advanced workshop

Please note: This course is in a priority booking period for students enrolled on the previous term.  Any remaining spaces will be made available to the general public from Monday 26 February.

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. This is the third term of a three-term course.

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.

More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.
