A weekly workshop for poets looking to develop their individual voice and technique
Please note: This course is in a priority booking period for students enrolled on the previous term. Any remaining spaces will be made available to the general public from Monday 26 February.
This is a course suitable for intermediate writers who want to improve their skills and develop new work. Each week, we will read and discuss your poems in progress, developing familiarity with each others’ work and offering detailed feedback with the aim of moving your writing forward. Occasionally, we will also read published poems for stimulus and consideration.
10 weekly sessions on Thursdays 2.00pm – 4.00pm, starts 17 May. This is the third term of a three-term course. Priority booking for terms two and three will be given to term one students.
All classes will be in our new offices at 1 Dock Offices, Surrey Quays Road, Canada Water, SE16 2XU. The venue is 2-minute walk from Canada Water Station. Take the Lower Road exit onto Surrey Quays Road, cross over Deal Porters Way, and the Dock Offices are on the left.
