You’ve written some poetry, perhaps you’ve sent a few poems out into the world, but what’s the next stage? Are you needing some fresh motivation? How do you uncover possible topics? Are you curious about potentially deepening your work, or making it more true to you? How might you explore form and language? And how do you work at editing drafts to make your poems the best they can be? This free self-paced course, written by a practising poet, will provide ideas and inspiration to encourage you to plough your own poetic furrow.
