Poetry: The Joy of Making

In its earliest form, a poem was a ‘thing made or created’.  This course concentrates on the making of new work and its presentation.  Using prompts of all kinds including the beautiful surroundings of Garsdale, you’ll sharpen your technique, liberate your voice and enjoy the buzz of creating new poems.
