Writing Love Poetry 

An intense workshop with writing exercises led by publisher and poetry editor Katherine Lockton. We will look at some of the most powerful and successful love poetry by poets such as Christina Rossetti, Lord Byron and Wendy Cope and discuss what makes them great as well as what we can learn from them. Focusing on writing new material, participants will come away with a body of creative work (2 or 3 first drafts.) A limited number of places are available to ensure the tutor has ample time for each student. All levels welcome.
£32 members

£38 full price
When: Jan 29th 12.30pm-5.30pm
