Time to Write another Poem

Ref: C2346983

The course builds on several previous courses aimed at beginners who found some joy in putting their ideas onto paper. You will meet new people, make friends, win trust and have fun together exploring the world in which you live your everyday lives. We will look at how others do this too, learning from their stories and how they reflect life in their work. This is not a course on classical writing. You will be expected to write in and about a range of situations in your own style.

Course aim

This course seeks to discover more inspiration from our everyday life and experiences. We learn use word games, writing processes and editing skills to hone our passions and observations into writings we are proud to share with others.
