Masks and sea creatures: new resources accompany Poetry Review

The Poetry Society has developed new workshop resources as an accompaniment to The Poetry Review, which provide points of discussion and writing prompts inspired by poems selected from the journal.  These resources can be used in the classroom, with fellow poetry enthusiasts, or for individuals to spur their creativity while exploring some intriguing new poems.

There are two workshop resources based around poems from the Summer 2020 issue: an adult resource based on the poem ‘Labels for the Exhibition of an Hitherto Private Cabinet of Masks’ by Gregory Leadbetter and a resource for younger poets based on the poem ‘Sea Creature Regrows Entire Body’ by Elaine Beckett.

Workshop resources join a range of supplementary material to The Poetry Review including podcast conversations with poets, poets discussing their work in the Behind the Poem series and poets selecting favourite works that have inspired them in Poetry Mixtape.
