Speaker(s): Wendy Pratt BSc BA MA
Why can poems change the way we think and feel? This module considers vital aspects of form including rhythm, enjambment, layout, punctuation, voice, imagery, alliteration and rhyme. We will explore how these tools are used by published authors in relation to their subject matter, and put techniques into practice through a structured series of writing activities. Students will develop a critical awareness of how poems work, expand their knowledge of contemporary poetry, and enhance their editing, redrafting and feedback skills. By the end of the module students will have produced a portfolio of new poems and a critical commentary. All levels of experience welcome.
This course will be delivered via Zoom. Students joining the course will need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with a microphone (essential) and a webcam (desirable) as well as a reliable broadband connection.
Please note - this is a repeat of the autumn term module due to popular demand. It is not a continuation course for those studying in the autumn term.
