A small supportive group for poets who wish to learn in a structured course which covers all aspects of the poetry-writing process. This term concentrates on form poetry and how the constraint of rhythm, rhyme and repetition can both hinder and help our poetry writing. We will consider a different form each session including villanelles, pantoums and triolets and practise writing these at home, and will also experiment with some shorter forms in class, such as tanka, clerihews and rondelets. Sessions will include writing in response to poems, discussing published poems and
giving and receiving feedback on each others' writing.
