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.


Overview

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.
