About Creative Writing - Poetry Week 1
Week one 17th January 2018 7-9pm
Please join us for a creative writing workshop – broken up into two 5 week chunks with flexible poetry classes so come along for one or more of these sessions. Alternatively you can book a block of just poetry or prose, or if you are really keen to develop your writing come along to the whole 10 week session. Even if your first love is not prose/poetry, the workshops will help develop your skills as a writer.
I believe that writing cannot be taught -- but it can be learnt, and this is where I start from. The classes are for anyone who cultivates a, “beginners mind” – new writers, experienced writers, all are welcome. We will use exercises and prompts and produce work during each session. Workshops will take place in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, and we will learn how to supportively critique each other’s work. You will read your work at a Flowetry event run through Wynwood Art/Locus of Walthamstow at a date TBC.
I have run successful Creative Writing Workshops at Kensington and Chelsea College and have had my poems published in a number of small press journals and zines, including The Los Angeles Review, Concrete, Remark and the recent Wynwood Art fanzines.
POETRY: these workshops will have the group look at the work of a poet and discuss it, we will then carry out exercises to start writing and then finish with more focused writing where you can mine the work you have done to ‘find’ your poem. We will discuss meter, and rhyme but the focus will be on free verse and on having you write, write, write!
