    About this course

    Get inspired by visual art via a gallery tour, then come together to workshop your poems over this 2 day course in London.

    In this course

    This course is held over two Saturdays: the first day for the gallery visit, the second day to workshop poems inspired by your gallery experience.

    Poets have often taken inspiration from painters and sculptors; with the rise of a new generation of artists challenging traditional media, can we find a new source for poems which push boundaries in a similar way? Tamar Yoseloff will take participants into galleries to engage with contemporary art and to encourage new poetry in response.

    You will also look at similarities between the gallery as a space for exhibition and the page as a space for composition.

    Now you can

    • Learn to combine visual art and poetry
    • Work on some poetry inspired by the greats

    Fun fact

    A phobia of poetry exists and it's called 'Metrophobia' - fear of poetry.
