    About this course

    Over this 5 session course in London you will discuss, dissect and explore counter and companion poems with Inua Ellams.

    In this course

    Response-poems, a tradition as old as poetry itself; and one could argue that all poems are response-poems. Raleigh responded by writing to Marlowe's 'The Passionate Shepherd to His Love', Bishop to Hemans' 'Casabianca', the list is inextinguishable.Â

    Over this 5 session course in London you will discuss, dissect and explore counter and companion poems. You should come with a clear sense of your preoccupations in poetry, and be ready to play, experiment and write.

    Now you can

    • Be inspired by many response-poems of the greats
    • Learn to write your own and become a pro

    Fun fact

    A companion piece is defined as: a literary or musical work that has a close relationship to another work by the same author or composer.
