Cardiff with Mab Jones

Booking now for

If no date is showing or you can’t find a suitable date/time, contact Paul McGrane to see if Mab can set up an ad-hoc session for you.

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

Mab runs one-hour sessions at 11am, 12.15pm, 1.45pm, 3.00pm, and 4.15pm. The venue is: Cardiff University Centre for Lifelong Learning, Ground floor cafe (opposite main entrance), 21-23 Senghennydd Rd, Cardiff CF24 4AG.

£40 for Poetry Society Members / £50 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 Mab has sufficient time to read your poems beforehand.
