We have one of the largest faculties of teaching poets in the world, which allows us to offer a huge diversity of expertise in poetic technique, inspiration and feedback. Every tutor’s teaching style is different, as is every student’s learning experience.
Our tutors are all practicing, professional poets with a wide range of experience in publishing, criticism, reviewing, editing, performing and event producing. We delight in their writing, but we also invite them to teach at the Poetry School out of great respect for their teaching skills and specialisms. Each term our roster of tutors changes, but we always ensure a balanced mix of our most experienced favourites, exciting new talent and special guests. At the end of each course, our teaching is evaluated by our students. Surveys taken from the last three years (since 2015) have ranked our overall teaching quality an average of 5 out of 5.
