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? 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.

‘The Poetry School shows a blue sky approach to what it considers poetry. I have benefitted from this immensely by being made aware of possibilities in my practice that I didn’t even know existed before. It can only be a great force in stimulating difference and experiment.’
