Poetry masterclass with Leni Shilton
Building on earlier workshops that have focused on the elements used in writing poetry, this workshop will examine the craft of poetry using your poems as the texts. Each poet has their own individual ‘voice’ and by exploring this we can learn more about what it is we are saying in our own work.
Participants will email two poems to Leni by 5th November
Bookings: Sue Fielding 8953 2776.
Numbers will be limited, so bookings are essential.
