Explore how to use imagery and imagination to develop your own poetic voice.
Award-winning and widely published poet Aoife Mannix will be your guide through this course, designed for poets who are keen to push themselves further. Through experimentation, challenging prompts, and feedback, you will produce plenty of new work and learn how to assess your own poetry more objectively. You will explore how to name the world through poetry, how to use location and sensory imagery to create poetic worlds, how to use poetic techniques to travel through these worlds, and how to bring together the domestic and the surreal to bring your poetry home.
This course is suitable for those relatively new to poetry and for those who wish to develop their craft further.
