AXA R2 Grow a Poem: Finding Your Poetic Voice


Description
We all have a poem within us and this course will help its students to discover their own poetic voice. Over ten sessions, students will have the opportunity to write and share their own poetry, realising that writing poetry is not some esoteric business, but rather a vital part of what it means to live in and understand the world. Along the way, we will explore a collection of wonderful poems, getting to grips with how they work as well as sharpening our analytical skills, but always with an eye on crafting our own poems and finding our own poetic voice. Students will become more confident in reading and thinking about poetry but, more crucially, become empowered to participate in this most human of activities.
