What others say:
I loved this course from beginning to end. The range of poetic techniques explored, combined with the two revision exercises was a marvelous recipe to grow as a poet. I really enjoyed the in-class revision exercises. There is nothing I can think of that could work better. The handouts were very useful and helpful material, and are valuable source to continue our learning journey outside of class.
Jennifer's feedback was super helpful. Very detailed, with lots of interesting points to think about and improve on. I always felt inspired after receiving the feedback.
Inge has great knowledge about writing, is a strong communicator and a committed teacher. Her critiques are no-BS, kind, honest and constructive and have helped me immensely in my goal of writing better.
Laura is an amazing teacher! She stimulated and encouraged each and everyone in the group, during class discussion and in her feedback.
Laura was a kind, upbeat and very patient teacher who took a genuine interest in each of us and our work.
Laura is a wonderful teacher. Her feedback was really insightful and helpful.
I loved that the workshop gave me a writing routine, which unlocked all kinds of creative spaces. The technical aspects of the assignments made me try news things; they invited me to feel and portray different kinds of characters, and therefore expand the ways in which I look at the world around me.
I think it's a great way to find your "writing voice" and become a better and more confident writer overall, and most of all it just makes you write, so if you're someone that needs a little push, I think it's perfect.
I think that Karen is marvelous. She is straightforward and honest and earnest.
Karen was great. She gave very useful information that was really personalised and I felt she took us seriously. I appreciated her calm, thorough explanations.
Karen was a really great head for the workshop. I could tell that she put a lot of care into her feedback and that she really started to get a sense of who we were all specifically as writers.
Karen has a calm, but authoritative energy. I trusted that when she said something it was well thought out, and helpful. In a few, well chosen words she manages to get a point across which will have me considering editing options for days to come.
