Taking Your Writing Further with Myra Schneider

Myra Schneider's flagship monthly poetry group with detailed feedback and discussion in each session.

* To ensure the safety of our tutors and students, the first few sessions will take place online, using email *

Monthly seminar groups with Myra Schneider at her home in North London. This is a group for poets at publication stage which focuses on detailed feedback and discussion of participants’ poems in each session. It begins with a poetry topic, and will include this year: connecting material in a series of poems or a sequence, the flow of a poem, extending work in longer narratives. With a maximum of seven students, these seminars provide an intimate setting and generate supportive and critical friendships, helping you to become part of your local poetry community.

Entry into the seminars is by application only. If you would like to sign up, please contact the office for information and we will assist you in the application process. Do not book online before applying.

10 x monthly sessions between October and July. The first 3 sessions of the year will run over email, with the remaining 7 being scheduled to take place in person, in Myra’s home. Sessions will run 1.30–4.30pm on the below dates.


More information about how all our seminars work can be found on the Seminars Course Page.
