Evening

Join this poetry course in London designed for both experienced writers looking to widen their repertoire and relative beginners looking for a structured approach to their writing.

In this course

You will start by defining your goals as a writer and develop an individual body of work.

You will look at different approaches to poetry and aesthetics as expressed in interviews with writers and manifestos, and throughout writers' practice.

You will then move on to find ways in which writing can engage with multiple themes and look at the different effects of free and formal verse structures and of working within artificial constraints.

You will be encouraged to construct your own voice and confidence in creating and defending your work through exercises, reading, writing, group feedback and planning sessions.

Now you can

  • Understand writing styles and find the right one for you
  • Build your confidence
  • Build your own collection of verse
