This course is suitable for poets who would like to explore innovative poetic techniques, throw over old habits, or push their work further. You will be encouraged to explore a diversity of poetic forms and uses of language, such as open form, collage and juxtaposition. Your tutors will bring to bear their background in the UK’s innovative poetry scene, introducing you to the approaches of British and American experimental poets as a means of encouraging you to play and take risks in your own work. They will also help you explore some of the many ways of setting off into the unknown, and returning enriched, wiser, changed. More details here.
