Out-Spoken Press: Surgery with Anthony Anaxagorou

Out-Spoken Press: Surgery with Anthony Anaxagorou

Join us for a special day of one-to-one feedback sessions with poets from the inimitable Out-Spoken Press

This is a rare opportunity for feedback on your poems from three exciting poets at Out-Spoken Press: Anthony Anaxagorou, Fran Lock, and Bridget Minamore. These poets will spend the 2 March resident at the Poetry School, each with four one-hour slots available, for in-depth one-to-one discussion on your work; so pick your tutor and prepare a selection of poems-in-progress for advice and guidance from these exemplary poets and editors.

Each tutor has the following slots available:

10:30 – 11:30
11:45 – 12:45
14:00 – 15:00
15:15 – 16:15

To book your session with Anthony, click ‘purchase course’ and then select a slot from the drop-down menu. You may submit up to 6 poems of no more than 150 lines total. Poems should be sent to administration[at]poetryschool.com no less than 2 weeks before your session.

All classes will be in our offices at 1 Dock Offices, Surrey Quays Road, Canada Water, SE16 2XU. The venue is a 2-minute walk from Canada Water Station. Take the ‘Lower Road’ exit from the station onto Surrey Quays Road, then walk straight ahead, crossing over Deal Porters Way, and the Dock Offices come up on the left. The door for the school is at the far end of the building.

More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.

‘Doing a course with the Poetry School pushed me to spend the time and effort on my writing, and getting tutor and peer feedback made me edit my work more, which made it much better.’
