Reading & Writing Poetry


Interactive Live Course

Guided by Charles Olson’s essay ‘Projective Verse’ (1950), this 8-week course, that has been designed for those with some experience in reading and writing poetry, will explore open and less traditional verse forms in keeping with Denise Levertov’s dictum that a poem’s form “is never more than a revelation of content.” 

By way of close reading and your own experiment, you will become familiar with the traditions of innovation behind contemporary practice. You will also have the opportunity to submit your poetry to the class for feedback and discussion in order to aid your own revision and to develop critical discourse.

Along with the other participants you will generate a dynamic and varied body of work with a polish specific to publication and / or performance. Most importantly, you will experience the challenge and energy of a collaborative course.
