One of our flagship advanced workshops, with the benefit of special guests
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 on the development of your own poetry through weekly homework exercises, reading assignments, lively group discussions and in-depth feedback on your poems in progress. Three visiting poets per term will give a short reading and discussion of their work, answer questions, and offer feedback on student poems. Summer guests, subject to final confirmation, will be John McAuliffe, Ian Duhig, Karen McCarthy Woolf and Don Share.
10 weekly sessions on Thursdays 11am – 1.00pm, starts 17 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.
