Meanwhile in London the Poetry School will be starting a series of year-long courses, including Roddy Lumsden’s Form and Music, Kathryn Maris’ advanced workshop, Jacqueline Saphra’s Training the Poem and Hannah Lowe’s Generating Poems. Shorter courses of 10 weeks include Liane Strauss’ poetry foundation course, Judy Brown on the Stuff of Modern Living, Eva Salzman on modern nature poetry and Simon Barraclough on Samuel Beckett and Poetry.

In Manchester, students will be able to work with Helen Mort and have special access to Manchester museum’s collections to create work inspired by the exhibits, which will go on to be published in the Poetry School’s Campus Pamphlets series. There’s also a William Carlos Williams / Wallace Stevens reading course with Jeffrey Wainwright and a selection of Saturday Sessions with Ann and Peter Sansom. Exeter students can track the different approaches to writing lyric poetry through the 20th century with Andy Brown, and in Bristol Andrew Jamison’s course has a new venue, longer hours and more of a focus on feedback. In addition Poetry School seminar groups meet around the country. There are currently spaces in groups in Bridport, Exeter, Kent, Birmingham and Plymouth – email Jo at administration@poetryschool.com for details.
