Knock those loose poems into shape with some concentrated feedback
Do you have a heap of discarded poems which just won’t work no matter how many revisions you make? The Poetry School’s Fortnightly Feedback workshops provide a place for the general improvement of left-for-dead poems in need of resuscitation. Bring poems of any shape or size once a fortnight and receive detailed feedback from your tutor and general advice from fellow students. These courses are ideal for those looking to ready poems for magazine submission.
