Booking *now open* for my next 6 week course!



Mon 3rd June – Mon 8th July 2019, Wantage, OX12 8DA

The group will have a similar format to my previous courses, and will include: reading and discussing poetry; using it as a springboard to spark creative ideas; individual writing time; sharing, support and workshop/feedback time.

I’m envisioning the group will have returning poets who have some experience, but equally there will be support for anyone who is just starting out in writing poetry. All you need is a willingness to write and an open mind!

Cost: £60 whole course

Places are limited, e-mail to book.



Next Monday evening course in Wantage starting Feb 25th, running for 6 weeks until April 1st.
