Poetry School: Tutor Academy Week, April 2019
Put a spring back in your poems’ step, and see new inspiration bloom at our brand new Tutor Academy! This spring we have collaborated with Martha Sprackland, editor at Offord Road Books, to co-curate a week of exciting half-day workshops led by ten poets who are teaching for the Poetry School for the first time.

We are delighted to welcome these new tutors to the school to teach on topics as varied as pop music and prophecy, Rudolf Laban, the heartbeat of trees, violence, food, mysteries and more. 

These half-day workshops cost £35 and take place at the offices of the Poetry School, 1 Dock Offices, Surrey Quays Road, Canada Water, London SE16 2XU.
