Advanced Poetry Workshops 2020-2021
CWP in collaboration with New Writing South
This higher-level course has been designed for writers with prior experience of working in poetry groups, published poets or writers who have attended poetry writing courses as part of Higher Education courses and who would like to continue exploring their professional practice, writing technique and style in practical writing sessions.
The group will meet on a fortnightly basis to explore and discuss aspects of poetic technique or to review work in progress. These sessions will be facilitated and run by the writing tutor, though there will be opportunities for poets to present work, ideas and practical exercises and to suggest topics for discussion, should they so wish. The emphasis will be on practical writing in the class as well as critiquing work in progress. Between meetings, you will be able to share work and raise questions around writing technique with other writers in the group by using the interactive webpages for the course.
One year in fortnightly sessions, then five consecutive sessions

In the event of a resurgence of the coronavirus pandemic and/or any restrictions on social gatherings, courses will be taught via Zoom (a video conferencing platform) for the duration of the restrictions.
All tutors on the Creative Writing Programme have experience of teaching online and we have a secure and stable system for providing this service built into our website. You will need to ensure you have access to a computer/laptop connected to the internet with a video camera (most modern computers have one built in).
If we do need to move teaching to Zoom temporarily, you will be given a simple step by step guide to accessing the Zoom platform and advice and support from our tutors and IT staff. Moving classes online will not have any significant effect on the structure or content of your class.
