Current Poetry Classes

Enrolments opening soon for:

May 1st to 29th
Examining the Ockhams

A five-session Reading for Writing course with a New Zealand focus, taking a close look at the books shortlisted for the poetry category of the 2021 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. Which books? We’ll find out when the shortlist is announced on March 3rd!

A great way to dive in to the world of contemporary New Zealand poetry – lots of discussion, lots of (the best kind of) arguments both for and against, and plenty of writing exercises for you to try your own hand at. Will you agree with the judges’ choices? Join in the fun!

A combination of close reading with writing exercises.
Suitable for all levels.
