Knock those loose poems into shape with some concentrated feedback.

Knock those loose poems into shape with some concentrated feedback from Granta’s poetry editor.

Do you have a heap of discarded poems that just won’t work, no matter how many revisions you make? Poetry School’s Fortnightly Feedback course provides a place for the improvement of left-for-dead poems in need of resuscitation. Bring drafts of any shape or size once a fortnight for advice and feedback from your peers, before submitting a final draft to the tutor for detailed comment, criticism, and direction. 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.’
