Out-Spoken’s Poetry Masterclass is a monthly three hour weekend workshop which is facilitated by leading UK/US poets.
This month’s session is led by award-winning poet and founder of Out-Spoken, Anthony Anaxagorou. Anthony has published 9 volumes of poetry, selling over 6,000 copies worldwide.
This session asks: when is a poem finished? How do we know what to take out and what to keep? Anthony Anaxagorou will look at various ways in which we can approach editing a poem without subtracting from its essence. The words we employ and the way in which we organise them are what eventually determines a poem’s success.
The class is open to members of the public of all ages and abilities – from beginner to the more advanced. The intention is to give anyone with an interest in poetry the chance to work with the country’s most revered writers’ while learning some of their methods and approaches to crafting beautiful and original poetry.
Poets will be required to bring in existing work for this masterclass.
Suitable for all ages.
