New course starting 1st march 2021
What is it?
How can we use close reading and poetry analysis to improve our own writing? Are YOU confident in how you read poetry, and how line breaks, use of white space, imagery, metaphor – the tools of the poet’s trade – can be utilised effectively in your own work?
Do you feel that, sometimes, you don’t ‘get’ what’s happening in a poem when you read it?
Then this is the course for you.
This course is designed to help you develop a close reading practice, supporting and guiding you through different styles of poetry and encouraging you to try your hand at these styles in a warm, supportive and pressure free environment.
How Does it Work?
There are three different parts to the course, designed to suit different income levels and ‘free time’ budgets.
Package One: A four week course including two writing prompts per week, example poems delivered to your email inbox five times a week, access to the closed facebook group AND an invitation to the end of course open mic.
Starting on the 1st March, each week for four weeks in March you will receive a set of guidance notes and two writing prompts over the week and each day you will receive an example poem with brief notes direct to your inbox. You’ll have access to the closed facebook group where course members can post their work safely, comment on other people’s work and chat about the course materials. I’ll be about daily to moderate the group. You’ll also get an invitation to the end of the course open mic, a chance to come and listen to poets on the course and even share your own work!
Price: A flat fee of £20
