This course is ideal for beginners or those with limited experience, teaching you a range of poetry techniques and styles. Classes will be interactive and supportive, with time for writing and sharing feedback. Students are expected to attend all sessions, and if they can’t make it to inform the class tutor or centre as soon as possible, and you will also be expected to record your learning and progress with the support of the tutor. In some cases, homework may be set.
