This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss your poetry on a one-to-one basis with poet and tutor Jo Bell, 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.

Jo runs one-hour sessions in Chapter One Books, 19 Lever Street, Manchester M1 1BY at 1pm, 2.15pm, 3.30pm and 4.45pm.

£40 for Poetry Society members, £50 for non-members. Book online or call Paul McGrane on 020 7420 9881. Poetry Society members should enter MEMBER1 in the Coupon code field on the next page to receive a £10 discount. Once your session is booked, you will be asked to send up to 6 poems, or 150 lines maximum, in advance, so that Jo has sufficient time to read your poems beforehand.
