Writing Poetry - Craft and Inspiration
A poet needs both inspiration and skill. In this class we will go prospecting in the rivers where the gold of inspiration is to be found, and practice our craft – how to use words and sound for poetic effect. Each week we will do some reading and writing in class and a homework task will be set so that we can share what we've written the following week. All levels of experience welcome.
