Online courses

This course is designed to give students the space to develop an understanding of different poetry styles and the skills to be able to create such poetry themselves.

Over 6 weeks, students will hear poetry written by their experienced tutors and guest speakers and have the chance to learn and practice Acrostik poetry, Haiku poetry, non-rhyming poetry, Lyric poetry, Sonnet poetry and/or musical poetry and have the opportunity for a week of freestyle! Students will also be able to try their hand at creative writing if they find a style of poetry is not for them.
