The Poetry School: The Power Of Place
Fri 22 Sep 2017 to Fri 20 Oct 2017
Explore the power of place in your poetry in this five week course in Manchester with Edmund Prestwich

The influence of place touches every point in our lives, shaping us and our feelings about who we are and what we want to be. Places where we are inspire feelings of familiarity and belonging, entrapment and exile. Remembered or imagined places evoke ways of life we’ve lost or never had.

In this five week course we’ll look at how different poets have harnessed some of this power in their poetry. We’ll explore how we can incorporate their strategies into our own writing and will workshop poems produced by members of the class. Poets we look at will include Eliot, Yeats and Larkin, Derek Mahon and Sarah Maguire, Baudelaire, Cavafy and Seferis and a range of younger contemporaries.

Dates: 22 September – 20 October 2017, 7 – 9pm (five weekly sessions)
Location: Friends' Meeting House, Manchester
Cost: £90
