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 5 weeks, students will hear poetry written by their experienced tutors and have the chance to learn and practice Acrostic poetry, Haiku poetry, non-rhyming poetry, Lyric poetry, Sonnet 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.
