Spring celebrates hope and renewal. Through time and across the world, Spring has inspired poets to capture that spirit of the new. Using some famous (and not so famous) examples of Spring poetry to start us off, this course aims to help you record what you notice and want to remember about this special time. The session is particularly suitable for beginners, but those who have some experience are welcome also.     

On this course, you will look at:

  • Using others’ poems as inspiration for your own 
  • Using images and memories to ignite ideas for poems 
  • Using your five senses to write  
  • Recognising the clues in the shape of a poem – poetic form  
  • Understanding and using metaphor in poems 
  • Sharing your work with the group and hearing others’ poems 

This is an online course. A suitable electronic device such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone with internet access will be required. Learners will be required to download and use Zoom (free software).  You will also require paper and pencil
