Poetry School moves London courses to Somerset House
The Poetry School is marking its 25th anniversary by moving its London-based workshops, events and other activities to Somerset House Exchange, an arts centre in the heart of the capital. The move will take place on 1 February. Somerset House describes itself as “London’s working arts centre”. Previously the Poetry School has been at Dock Offices, Canada Water, in south-east London.
The Poetry School describes itself as the UK’s largest provider of poetry education. It was founded in 1997 by poets Mimi Khalvati, Jane Duran and Pascale Petit. It has teaching centres across England, and also runs online courses. It also has an accredited master’s degree in Writing Poetry, run in London and Newcastle, in collaboration with Newcastle University.
