Creative writing workshop: pop up poetry

Passmore Edwards Centre, Newton Abbot

Who is this course for?

Wonderful opportunity to be creative alongside other like-minded individuals. We will be looking at alliteration, assonance, highlighting the senses, emphasising imagery – making each word count! You will produce a minimum of three poems and a chance to read yours out!

Course content

You will be stimulated, having fun with words; building phrases and then forming your own poems. The workshop will be divided into 3 sections, so that you get the opportunity to try out 3 different styles of poetry. Also, a chance to try yours out on a willing and supportive audience!
