Course Summary: Have you hit a slump with your writing? Has the pressure to ‘succeed’ drowned out the essence of why you write? This generative writing course will help you to fall back in love with poetry and to return to the sense of awe that attracted you in the first place.

Course Outline: Poets will be encouraged to write with intention, to listen to the world around them as detectives searching for the wonder in the everyday. Poets will be sent a weekly prompt and curated poems for inspiration. The sessions will be theme based and participants will be introduced to Gregory Orr’s four temperaments of poetry: imagination, story, music and structure. Participants will be encouraged to give constructive feedback with the aim of deepening the work to go beyond surface level.
