Advanced Poetry Workshop with Mark Waldron (Autumn 2020)

Develop your writing through discussion and feedback in this advanced course with Mark Waldron.

* To ensure the safety of our tutors and students, this course will run online, with each session being in a CAMPUS chatroom *

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, 6.45–8.45pm, starts 30 September. This is the first of a three-term course.

Please note: Entry to this course is by application only. If you would like to join please send a submission of three poems to [email protected] If you book online before applying we cannot guarantee that you will be granted entry to the course. More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.
