Poetry and the Poetry Scene - A poetry summer school

Tuesday 10th May (19:00) - Tuesday 12th July 2011 (21:00)

Poetry & the Poetry Scene: Taking a longer view
Tutor: Matthew Welton, Lecturer in the School of English Studies

This Poetry Summer School is offered in association with The Poetry School.  If you would like to attend the Poetry Summer School please contact the Poetry School at the above web address or telephone 0207 582 1679.

Each of us is probably involved in poetry in a number of different ways – as writers of our own work; as readers of books and magazines; through attending readings or workshops; or by submitting work to publishers, magazines, and competitions. Sometimes, though, writers can feel that, however involved they become in the poetry scene, there is something excluding them from the routes to success – and sending poems out to publishers feels like shooting in the dark. The content of these sessions is designed to give you a view of the bigger picture of how the different aspects of poetry – and the poetry scene – fit in with each other. The importance of the actual poems you write remains central, and provides the basis for developing a strategy for getting published. Lots of practical writing tips included.

There are 5 sessions that take place every fortnight on a Tuesday.  You can start at any point in the term.

Price: £53, £41 (60+), £35 (concs)
Level: open to all
