Starting this February, I’ll be reprising my role as wisdom-dispenser/tutor extraordinaire with five weekly poetry classes in association with the Poetry School. The PS gives all the lovely, flattering details:
Read Like a Writer Returns
Day / Time: Thursdays, 6-8pm
Duration: 5 weeks
Start Date: 7 February
Price: £63, £54 (60+), £47 (concs)
Level: open to all.
In this session students will read a selection of contemporary poets with an eye to learn how to take risks with style and form. As Picasso said: ‘Good artists copy, great artists steal’. And so, we will practice theft together, to see that no matter who or what you try to sound like – you will always come out sounding like yourself. Therein you may discover your own voice. Plenty of room for discussion and in-class assignments. Sign up now to receive your first assignment! All levels welcome, and you will get on well whether you have taken last term’s course with Ryan or not.
To book: call 0207 582 1679 (£1.50 booking fee) or online at www.poetryschool.com (no booking fee)
