An introduction to poetry

Online only

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 4 weeks, students will hear poetry written by their experienced tutors and guest speakers and have the chance to learn and practice various poetry styles, such as Acrostik poetry, Haiku poetry, non-rhyming poetry and more! Students will also be able to try their hand at creative writing if they find a style of poetry is not for them.
