On our Poetry courses, you will respond to new writing themes, and explore the many forms poetry can appear in. You will look at a wide range of work from professional poets and develop your voice through a range of practical exercises that look at tone, rhythm and meter. You will also look at ways to add form to your work, use of metaphor and lyricism, and ways in which descriptive imagery can elevate your writing.
Like all of our writing courses, you’ll receive friendly, constructive feedback from your teacher throughout the course. The opportunity to discuss and share your ideas with a group of fellow writers can be an incredibly useful part of the creative process, helping you develop the style and scope of your writing.
Please note: fluency in English is essential for this course. If you have any special requirements please inform our Customer Services Team prior to your course start date so we can ensure we cater for these needs. You can call us on 0207 042 8833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
