Over the course of six workshops, participants will come together, share ideas, hone in on their skills and, most importantly, write!

 

This 6 week course is designed to take you through the whole process of writing a poem – from the genesis of an idea and using different writing forms, to discovering the sound of your poems and revisiting and editing your work, as well as having the platform to showcase your work at the end! The course is developed around the idea of reducing the amount of guesswork in your writing and to encourage and inspire craft and creativity.

 

Facilitated by acclaimed poet and performer, Roger Robinson, The Writing Room will put you through your paces and engage in an exciting range of creative exercises that will challenge, encourage and inspire your work as an artist.

 

Alongside Roger, two of the sessions will be facilitated by guest artists who will share their expertise.

 

Sessions are for spoken word artists and emerging poets aged 18-25.

 

Session dates: 17 Oct – Tue 21 Nov 2017

The Writing Room Takeover: Friday 1 December 7-9pm
