Will the Poetry School help me become a poet?

Since 1997, when the Poetry School was founded, our students have gone on to publish in magazines and online; they’ve produced pamphlets and books as poets and editors with publishers from the smallest independents to the largest commercial houses; they’ve won multiple prizes and awards; they’ve become poetry tutors themselves; they’ve moved on to take poetry MAs and PhDs.; they’ve set up performance nights, magazines, shows and events. While we can’t guarantee that all students will go on to get published; serious engagement with the art and craft of poetry in the company of tutors and fellow students who are as passionate about the form as you are can only ever improve your chances of getting your work out to a wider audience.
