One day poetry course in Nottingham with Jo Dixon.

How do you write about nature in poetry? This course explores how a range of contemporary poets approach this subject in their writing, and provides an opportunity for you to develop new work of your own.

Practical reading and writing activities will help you stimulate your own nature poetry, whether for personal interest or with publication in mind. It’s a course aimed at the beginner or poets with some experience who are new to the subject.

On this course you will:

learn about the different ways you can write poems about nature
complete short and engaging writing exercises to stimulate your own writing
give and receive feedback in a supportive environment.
What will I gain?

This course will provide you with new ideas and poems to add to your portfolio, and a deeper understanding of the differing approaches to nature poetry.

Tutor profile: Jo Dixon is a graduate of the MA in Creative Writing at Nottingham Trent University and a practice-led PhD candidate at the same institution.

Her poems have appeared in New Walk, The Interpreter's House and Furies: A Poetry Anthology of Women Warriors (For Books’ Sake). In April 2016, her poem ‘Skegness Wake’ was commended in the Writing East Midlands inaugural poetry competition. Her debut poetry pamphlet: A Woman in the Queue, was published by Melos Press in May 2016.
