This four week series starts with performances from four published poets followed by close readings of the poems.
The follow weeks will explore the craft of writing with tools and writing exercises which can then be polished and performed.
The class will be invited to participate in National Poetry Day on Friday 27 August with “Song and Poetry Thing”.
