Please note: Entry to this course is by application only. If you would like to join please send a submission of three poems to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you book online before applying we cannot guarantee that you will be granted entry to the course.
This course is for advanced writers of poetry. Each week, poets will benefit from in-depth discussion of their poems in a supportive environment. This course has a clear focus on editing and re-drafting alongside a discussion of themes and ideas, forms, and technical aspects. Responding to the work of the group as it unfolds the tutor will also introduce poems from a range of traditions to provoke thought and expand the poets’ potential range.
To apply: contact the office for details.

About Richard Price View Profile
Richard Price is the author of the acclaimed Lucky Day, Moon for Sale, and the prize-winning Small World (all Carcanet). He recently published a book of essays on poetry, small presses, and artist’s books, Is This A Poem? (Molecular Press). “Poets have to be linguistic virtuosi, but I prefer them to be brilliant quietly. Richard Price’s poetry is inventive, sometimes dazzling, but never merely showy.” – Carol Rumens, The Guardian
‘Initially I felt very anxious about attending an event at the Poetry School as I was uncertain whether my writing was good enough. However…every single event I’ve done (in person and online) has made me feel welcome and part of a community of poets.’
