Taster: Poetry and Wellbeing - Great Poems (Newton Abbot) View details

What is the point of poetry? Why do we read it, and why do we write it? Is it essential to our wellbeing? This course includes the shared reading of some of the great poems, a running debate on how poets justify what they do, and the opportunity to compose poems of our own. We exchange views and definitions of poetry within a supportive workshop format, developing a more confident appreciation of expressive, literary language, and exploring our own creative, poetic imaginations through formal composition.
