'The Poetry School has introduced me to forms of poetry and styles of writing that I might never have come across. It has prompted me to work at writing creatively and to experiment in different styles. It has allowed me to hear the poetry of other writers and engage in discussion about poetry with my peers. It has been a great learning experience and hugely enjoyable.'
