This is a Campus group associated with the Poetry Library Lock-in course, a place for course members to share work, resources and conversation.
Course description: A new course for poetry writers and readers, to celebrate the Poetry Library’s 60th anniversary. Poets and regular Library users Claire Crowther, Karen McCarthy Woolf, Fiona Moore, Daljit Nagra and James Wilkes, in discussion with resident Librarians and course students, will talk about their discoveries in the Library and the new work it has led to. After-hours access to the Library’s collection of books, audio, video and ephemera will inspire new poems and deepen understanding of current trends in contemporary poetry. This course is suitable for people looking for independent inspiration for new work and also those wanting informal but in-depth poetry discussion.
