I would be lost without The Poetry School courses.

I have really enjoyed the course and everything Poetry School is doing for the cause of promoting this art … Personally, as I’ve never had any formal feedback/training it has been nothing short of utterly inspirational.

Part of the reason I’m doing this course is to force myself to make time to write poetry, and it is working beautifully!

We all – everyone I know who has anything to do with the Poetry School – really appreciate what you do, on a practical and logistical level, for the Poetry School. Online courses are now easier to engage with and more user-friendly and CAMPUS, even to a Social Media hermit like myself, is a jolly and friendly place full of interesting people sharing information, news and ideas and not shouting about themselves.

The Open Workshops are a great resource. Well thought out / challenging assignments and thoughtful feedback during the live chat. Thank you for the effort involved in putting on the latest one and thank you Poetry School for supporting these

I’m doing How to Get Rich – Vocabulary, Idiolect and Iconography with Roddy Lumsden and the Online Feedback Course with Antony Dunn – both excellent

The Poetry School, via CAMPUS and other courses, has indeed provided me, a working mum with school aged children, with access to excellent tuition and connections to the poetry community that I couldn’t otherwise have made

Many thanks to you all for providing a creative and nurturing environment for poetry and poets, and special thanks for the guidance and inspiration I’ve found within your community.

As I don’t seem to have been asked for official feedback on Edmund Prestwich’s wonderful PS Course which spanned Homer’s Odyssey and Illiad and investigated a range of contemporary responses, I wish to let you know what a credit to the Poetry School these five sessions were. The academic and erudite depth of the tutor’s knowledge and understanding and the detailed and thorough preparation were key factors in making the whole experience enlightening, uplifting and inspiring. We learnt an enormous amount in this short course (a pity it could not have been longer) as well as having the opportunity to get tutor and peer feedback on our own poems written in response to the studied materials.

I would like to say it has been the most inspiring course I have taken
