Reading and Writing Poetry

Ref: C3125667

Our poetry day will look at ways to read and write poetry. We'll use exercises designed to engage both absolute beginners and experienced writers equally. As we work together, we'll take the sting out of contemporary poetry, reading examples and finding how many of today's voices offer just the same rewards and pleasures that poets have traditionally done. Fiona Sampson, our course leader, is a highly experienced tutor as well as one of the UK's leading poets.
