This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss your poetry on a one-to-one basis with poet and tutor Maggie Sawkins, a relaxed but in-depth analysis of your poems. Identify strategies for further developing your writing, discuss problems you may be experiencing and look at strategies for taking your work forward. There will be plenty of time to talk about all those things you need to know about writing, revising and submitting your work. 

Maggie runs one-hour sessions at the Cathedral Innovation Centre in Portsmouth – 1pm, 2.30pm, and 4pm. £40 for Poetry Society members, £50 for non-members. Book online or call Paul McGrane on 020 7420 9881.

What they say:

“Maggie was courteous, thoughtful and perceptive about my work.  I found her style of tutoring very helpful. She facilitated me to discuss, as if on equal terms with her, the merits of each poem and possible ways forward with them. I found the Surgery to be motivational. I consider it to be good value for money, and I would certainly recommend Maggie to friends.” – PM, Isle of Wight
