About the sessions

Getting inside poetry: In each session we take time to enjoy poems by well-known poets and see what we can learn from them – we aim to get inside the poems, not to tear them apart!
Let the poem write itself: Short writing activities allow you to experiment with words.
Chiselling and polishing: We spend some time on techniques to get a draft poem into its final shape.

Each session has a theme, which you can interpret however you like! We also focus on a particular aspect of poetry each time. Saturdays at 2pm (finish at 4.30).

  • 7th October: Family and clan
                A poem’s voices.
  • 4th November: ‘Bare blackened branches claw the sky’
                Long looping lines.
  • 2nd December: Moon and fire
                ‘Slant’ writing.
