Dr Chris Ringrose understands how poetry works and how to help you build the skills you need to create memorable poems regardless of their theme or length.  Learn what makes engaging poetry and extend your understanding and passion to build confidence and expertise. 

Learn the practice of regular poetry journalling, drawing on things heard, overheard, seen, remembered and shared. In a journal, you start small by attending to the sound and images of two lines or even a single line before going on to build these into a weekly poem. One year's journalling results in a collection of your poems, which you can publish online or in print. In the workshop itself, we will write short pieces drawing on some of the hundreds of 'prompts' that can stir our poetic imagination, then share ways in which these 'seed' lines can be grown into a structured poem. 

Wyndham Writing Awards 2023 is proudly funded and supported by Arts Assist.
