Dates: Wednesday afternoons, 28 October to 16 December inclusive.

Times: 1 x 2 hour workshop 2pm to 4pm on 28 October, followed by 7 x 1.5 hour workshops, 2pm to 3.30pm Irish Standard Time on subsequent Wednesdays.


Participants may be given assignments to work on between sessions. These solo writing exercises would normally have taken place during classroom hours but as the workshop will take place via zoom instead this writing time will take place offline outside class hours.

Join award-winning poet Jane Clarke for this inspiring and encouraging online poetry writing course. The eight sessions will explore how to write poems that are moving and memorable. Each session will focus on one aspect of writing, (language, imagery, form, rhyme, rhythm, drafting, perspective, motivation) through input and a writing exercise. Jane will also provide a writing prompt at the end of every session. This workshop is aimed at emerging poets and is suitable for both beginners and intermediate.

Recommended Reading to accompany the course: Staying Human, ed: Neil Astley (Bloodaxe Books 2020): a selection of 500 contemporary poems from all over the world.

Instructions for participants will be emailed on purchase. NOTE: If you do not receive an email from us within one working day of booking, please check your junk mail. We’re here to support anyone with any questions.
