About this course

Timed to coincide with the total lunar eclipse of the Moon on Wednesday 26 May, this single session course focuses on the beauty and mystery of the moon, and how it has enchanted poets through the centuries. Using moon-inspired poems and images, this course aims to help you draft some work in your own words. The session is particularly suitable for beginners, but those who have some experience are also welcome.   

We will use a variety of poems and visual prompts to kickstart your poems that speak in the natural language of today. We will look at how to find poems close to home or those drawn from memory – or imagination. By the end of the session you will have tried out 2-3 named forms of poems.  

See Here comes the Sun for the companion course on June 10. 

You will need a notepad and pen
