What will you learn on this course?

This day course will bring some fun into creative writing and provide an opportunity to expand your writing techniques and consider poetry in its widest form. Carol’s approach is about building confidence and finding enjoyment as well as embracing the writing process. By examining both new and old poetry, song lyrics and poetic writing people will be able to:

• Use their life and this class to produce poetic writing by learning some poetic techniques

• By considering published poems/songs/poetic writing gain a greater freedom in writing their own ‘poems’

• Learn to edit and develop own work by looking at published and non-published work.

By the end of the day, the participants will have the confidence to write in their own style, but with added ‘tools’ from the class to extend and continue. They would have gained an appreciation that the poetic form is far more evident in writing in general.
