Arvon at Home Writing Week: Poetry Towards a Collection

October 12, 2020, 8:00 AMOctober 16, 2020, 5:00 PM EDT

Are you at “that” stage, wondering whether the poems you’ve been working on have the makings of a book? The move from thinking one poem at a time to visualising series and sequences can be scary as well as exciting. This course is designed to support you through that transition, and to help you think big, whether you’re working on your first collection, or your second, or beyond. Working in the comfort of your own home, ideally placed, with access to all your old drafts, we’ll spend the week looking at strategies for harnessing your existing poems so that they work with each other, and also creating new work that speaks to what you’ve already written.

Tutors for this program are the distinguished poets Fiona Sampson and Sean O’Brien.
