Finding The Poem 2018 with Paul Lyalls
Mon 22 Jan 2018 to Mon 5 Mar 2018
Poets of all levels of experience are welcome to this six week workshop course exploring where poems come from, how they build, grow and are discovered. At each session, unique and inspiring poetry making approaches will be shared.
Find out fun and easy ways to unlock poems and illuminate subjects ranging from everyday moments to world events, enabling participants to explore the epiphanies of their lives and their world around them. Supportive and constructive feedback, grow through sharing. It will be friendly, it will be fun, it will occasionally rhyme - but not all the time! (Fancy biscuits from Crouch End as standard!)
