About the Course

A one-day poetry workshop in Nottingham.

This course explores the work of contemporary poets who write about animals and the notion of the human animal, and will support you in developing your own poetry in this field.

The course is for beginners and more experienced writers who are interested in publication. It combines thoughtful, close reading of contemporary poetry with the creation of your own new and original work.

On this course you will:

complete poetry writing exercises that will involve whole group work, pair work and individual work
be guided through the process of writing a poem, from inception to editing
begin a portfolio of poetry or add to an existing one
receive high quality feedback on your work in a supportive environment
work with a tutor to identify the next steps for your writing.

What will I gain?

You will leave this course with a poem that you have written and edited.

You will also have an increased awareness of contemporary poetry that engages with animals and the notion of the human animal, and the confidence to continue this process independently.
