‘The course inspired me to engage with writing – mine and others – in a deeper way. I will seek out more opportunities to learn and develop in safe and creatively interesting spaces, so it’s the start of a journey. Sharing stories and making art is healing, especially in community. I would love to return to the Poetry School in future.’
