This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss your poetry on a one-to-one basis with poet and tutor Helen May Williams, who offers 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.
Helen is running two Poetry Surgeries in August
£20 for Poetry Society members, £30 for non-members. Book online or call Paul McGrane on 020 7420 9881. Once your session is booked, you will be asked to send up to 6 poems, or 150 lines maximum, in advance, so that Helen has sufficient time to read your poems beforehand.
