Poetry: Towards a Collection
20th April 2020 - 25th April 2020
If you’ve been writing for a while and have built up a substantial body of work, you’re no doubt asking yourself what your poems might add up to if you gather them into one manuscript. What makes for a successful, cohesive collection? How do you select and order your poems in your own unique way? Learn to become your best self-editor and develop your creative, critical confidence through the week. Using inspirational and playful strategies and technical as well as creative exercises, we’ll look at ways of identifying your key themes, narrative threads, preoccupations, strengths and weaknesses – and gaps to fill. Be prepared to write bold, fresh work and to be surprised by new poems that find you just when you least expect them.
