Our 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.
