Advanced Poetry Workshop with Mark Waldron [Spring 2024]

An advanced weekly workshop group with the inimitable Mark Waldron.

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 Zoom sessions on Wednesdays, 6.45–8.45pm (GMT), starts 17 January. 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].
