How to Write Poems that Matter

‘Poetry can tell us what human beings are. It can tell us why we stumble and fall and how, miraculously, we can stand up.’ Maya Angelou 

Through inspiring examples and exciting exercises, this workshop will give you a taste of the best and most uplifting contemporary poetry, and help you develop your own writing voice and practice. We will explore different forms, styles, techniques, influences, cover tips and pitfalls, but the overall aim is to free your imagination, creating poems that speak from the heart and soul, with the potential to make a difference.
