About Workshop Working within the constrained rules of formal poetry composition can generate a surprising amount of creativity. This short, intensive course is designed to hone your poetic technical skills and re-energise your muse.

The course focuses on traditional forms of poetry. Whether you’ve never tackled a sonnet in your life or you are already a dab hand with the villanelle, this supportive workshop environment will give you what you need to stretch your creative arm and polish your poems until they shine.

This five-day immersive course combines close reading and discussion of exemplar work with plenty of time for writing practice in a supportive workshop environment.
