This workshop will have two parts. Part 1 will be poetry writing: leap or tiptoe out of your poetic comfort zone in a supportive group environment. Try some writing experiments — write in new ways. Part 2 will be poetry editing: learn how to refine your poems for publication, performance or competitions.

An afternoon of fun with words for beginners and old hands.

Please bring writing materials and, if you like, a poem or two to work on.

Writing Powerful Poetry workshop 17 May

A student once asked me, ‘When I read a great poem, I feel something. Why?’ This workshop will focus on some of the answers to that question. Learn how to express emotions in your poems. See how great poets manipulate words to make magic and mystery. Find out how form creates feeling. We’ll read and discuss a selection of published poems, and get inspired to write our own. Whether you’re a curious beginner or already well-versed, you’re sure to have fun. Don’t forget your writing materials!

Tactful Group Feedback for poets 8 Feb ’15

Published poetryPoets, do you long for objective feedback? What works in your poems? What doesn’t? How can you make them better? Should you publish or perform them? Should you submit them to poetry competitions or contests? Are they likely to win? How good is your technique? How original are your ideas? Find out in a friendly, supportive, tactful group critiquing session with guest facilitator Jackson, a much-published poet and editor with training in mentoring and group facilitation. Please bring writing materials and several copies of two or three of your poems.
