Virtual Writing Room via ZOOM video conference & correspondence

A note to prose writers: have you ever wondered what it is like to write in the poetic form? Perhaps you write in prose automatically, but would like to try to use language in another way. If your fiction needs a lift, if your life-writing needs lilt, if your central characters don’t quite sing (or even if they do!) you can free your writing through poetry.

If you want to continue, Set 2 starts in November:

1) Should have could have poetry tool box

2) Journeys and the travelogue in conversation

3) A sense of place (2) and sorry not sorry

4) Image detectives and news you can use

5) As the saying goes

6) Tone and setting – gambling not betting

Monday evenings, 6.30pm to 9pm; Nov 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, Dec 6. Cost £125 (email kate@collage-arts.org to register and receive payment link)
