The tutor will provide feedback and annotated notes on students' own work; we will examine the use of imagery; writing the senses and emotions; and exploring poems by a range of contemporary poets.
What you will achieve
By the end of the course you will be able to employ a range of techniques used by established poets with handouts provided; had an opportunity for constructive feedback; experimented with a variety of poetry forms and discussed your own work with the group.
You could enrol on a Creative Writing course at Northbrook MET. Many students have attended these courses, finding the advice and encouragement helpful to their writing. A number of students have also had their work published in magazines and won prizes in writing competitions.
What you need to bring
Please bring along at least seven copies of any poem you wish the group to look at, in addition to pens/pencils and paper.
