Jen Hadfield

 T.S. Eliot Prize winning poet Jen Hadfield is on a flying visit to London, and we’re very pleased that she’s able to spend a morning in Thursday 12th October at The Poetry Society offering some one-to-one Poetry Surgery sessions. This is a  wonderful opportunity to discuss your work with Jen, who will offer a relaxed but in-depth analysis of your poems. You’ll identify strategies for further developing your writing, discuss problems you may be experiencing and look at strategies for taking your poetry forward. The 55 minute sessions begin 10.15am, 11.15am and 12.15pm.

Book online here. Once your session is booked, you will be asked to send three poems (+ one spare) in advance so that Jen has sufficient time to read your poems beforehand. Jen says ‘Bring one you feel is very strong, one you’ve found hard to judge for yourselves, and one that has been giving you gyp’.


£55 / £45 Poetry Society members. Poetry Society members should enter MEMBER1 in the Coupon code field to receive a £10 discount. 

Once you have made your booking, please send your poems via email to [email protected], in advance of your session.
