I’m guest tutor on a handful of the online ‘Writing Together’ poetry workshops for the Poetry Business this month, alongside Michael Laskey, Jackie Wills and River Wolton. I’ll be running sessions on Wednesday 13th May, Wednesday 20th May and Wednesday 27th May, all at 11am-12.30pm. And with River Wolton on Saturday 30th May, 9.30am-1pm. Details of all the sessions and how to book are here. The blurb for my workshops:
“You just go on your nerve” – Frank O’Hara. We’ll be writing in response to the kind of poems that make you want to pick up your pen and write, in exercises that set out to surprise you into going on your nerve, into writing about things you might not have thought of, and in ways you haven’t written before. That’s the plan.
