Current Poetry Classes

Now accepting enrolments for:

Louise Glück, Nobel Laureate

A single session Reading for Writing class focussing on the work of American poet, Louise Glück, the 2020 Nobel Laureate in Literature. Come explore one of my favourite poets, praised by the Nobel committee for “her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal”.

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

I’m offering three definite options for this – the morning of Saturday 14th at South Library, the morning of Sunday 15th also at South Library, and an online Zoom session (date and time to be confirmed between the participants – feel free to suggest a day and time in the questions field).

There is also a fourth possibility, if a sufficient number are keen but find the first three options impossible – a breakfast session at the Laboratory in Lincoln on Sunday 29th. If it goes ahead, it will be a very small group (8 max), and would require you to buy food and drinks as well (on top of your class fee) so as to justify us commandeering the table.
