The primary aim of the course is to introduce students to contemporary poetry, and inspire them to write their own poems.
Each day you will examine a different theme or subject and explore various techniques. Triggers, exercises and free-writing will be used to encourage the imagination. You will also read and discuss a number of poems to stimulate ideas.
You will be able to share your poems within the class, and have a chance to comment on each other's work in a supportive and safe environment. Advice on editing will be given, together with methods that can be used to critique poetry.
Please bring a notepad (A4 suggested).
