About this course

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


Did you know?

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.


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.

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

Save your spot

Classes are kept small so everyone gets the top instruction – book early so you don’t miss out!
