S J Fowler’s Vanguard Course for The Poetry School

Now booking for October 2014…

Explore the expansive modern tradition of British experimental poetry, as S J Fowler presents a necessarily idiosyncratic insight into the vibrant innovative poetries which have sought originality in the UK over the last 50 years. The sessions will explore the distinctive qualities of the British avant garde and chart a course through an enormous field of writing. Not formed by generation, region or faction, Vanguard explores characteristics that are possessed by, but in no way encompass, the work of many great British poets.

Week 1 – October 23rd – Rapidity
Exploring immediacy, alertness; quickness; celerity, concision. Scalpel cuts at smugness / pomposity, seeking the fragmentary whole. Drawing from the work of Tom Raworth, Maggie O’Sullivan, Denise Riley, Barry MacSweeney, Andy Spragg, Frances Kruk & others.
