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
