Want to be a poet? Go Write Ahead.
Write Ahead is a new free poetry workshop series for anyone starting to dabble in poetry, giving those curious about our classes a sample of what we do.
Each class will comprise quick-fire writing activities, an introduction to some contemporary poems, discussion, feedback, and a chance to talk to staff and current students.
These classes are suitable for anyone:
+ who is sharing and discussing poetry with a group of strangers for the first time
+ who has just started to write or is returning to writing after a long absence
+ who is interested in meeting up with new writers and poets in a casual, supportive environment
If you’re starting out, working with a writing group can be a nerve-racking experience. Write Aheads are the ideal way to work through your wobbly first forays into poetry, leaving you feeling confident enough to explore your creative writing further.
Friday 27 September, 7–9pm. Refreshments included.
Please book online to reserve your place. A small number of places will always be reserved for last-minute drop-ins.
