An introduction to poetry

Online only

Online Recovery College Courses (18+)

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.
