Poetry Club with Norwich WEA View details

An opportunity for anyone who enjoys poetry to share their favourite works in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Come along and read out a poem which you like, tell us why it is of significance to you and anything you know about the author so the others in the group can give their reactions and comments. We prefer those attending these sessions to contribute poetry written by other people rather than their own work, as this is not intended as a creative writing session for budding poets.

You will be encouraged to let your imaginations loose as we explore topics such as inspiration, POV, dialogue, narrative styles, editing and critiquing. Working to individual levels and interests, we will look at creating characters, developing plot and using different settings and styles to tell your stories.There will be a mix between creative writing exercises encouraging you to develop your own writing style, and workshops, where you will be supported to share and constructively critique writing produced by others. Everyone will be encouraged to share their writing but nobody will be expected to do so until they are ready. A relaxed, informal course for enjoyment.
