‘The Poetry School has been an incredible discovery for me – I have attended free workshops and ongoing courses, both of which have been fantastic. The courses I’ve attended have been instrumental in opening up the horizons of what I can write, and have introduced me to many brilliant contemporary poets. Because of the Poetry School’s affordable prices, I have been able to return for multiple terms and am excited about the prospect of continuing to develop my craft through more courses in future.’
