Description

Writing Climate Crisis - next start date January 2020

Wednesday 15th January 2020 - Wednesday 8th April 2020

(this is one of the many courses offered by Live Canon; find out about other courses, and opportunities for feedback and coaching at www.livecanon.co.uk/courses)

We ran this course in Autumn 2019, and are bringing it back in January 2020. The course will spend 12 weeks exploring poetry, from across the world, which has been written in response to the current global climate emergency. Each week we will be using aspects of the environmental discourse to inspire new poems. This is a 12 week correspondence course, and you can take part from anywhere in the world. Each week you receive a tutorial via email (illustrated with videos and audio recordings). There are writing prompts and exercises to inspire work, an online chat group for discussion with other participants, and detailed written feedback, weekly, from the Live Canon team.

The cost is 160 pounds (half price for students and the unwaged).

Feedback from participants on other Live Canon correspondence courses:

'The tutorials are absolutely packed with information, inspiration and ideas. Way more than I was expecting'.

'I've been on quite a lot of poetry courses. This is the first that has really changed me as a writer.'

'I found myself relating pretty much everything I was reading, writing or thinking to the course. It was three months of pure engagement for me'.

'This sort of correspondence course is a god send if, like me, you are on the other side of the world from the poetry community you used to be a part of...'
