Exploring poetry through reading and writing | Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

A gentle and yet inspiring course that will appeal to students who may be new to poetry as well as to more established writers who are interested in looking at their writing from a fresh perspective, keen to expand the range of their poetic voice and develop greater confidence in the poetic form. We will look at a variety of different poems in a variety of styles, exploring the possibilities of different forms to find what works for us as individuals. Throughout the day we will listen to recordings, discuss the experience of writing, and try our hand at several writing exercises.
