How Writers Write Poetry – Six Week Course

Decided to take part in a poetry six week course ‘How Writers Write Poetry’. I haven’t been writing poetry as much as I used to and I feel that this course is a great way to refresh myself and my creativity.

The wonderful thing about the course is that it is absolutely freeeeeeee; and it is all online!


Course Dates: Saturday, June 28, 2014 to Saturday, August 9, 2014

Came across this quote on the site, fell in love with it – ‘Prose is prose because of what it includes; poetry is poetry because of what it leaves out.’
