An Introduction To Writing Poetry (Online)By: Hazel Hogan Poetry
Over the course of five weeks this series of online workshops will aim to explore the manner in which poems are written, read, and edited. Workshops will feature generative exercises, analysis and discussion, through which you will become familiar with your own poetic concerns and tastes.
Participants will receive extensive feedback on four pieces, with a view to closely reworking two over the course of the five weeks.
This is a five-week long in depth poetry workshop, catered for all levels and abilities, led by two experienced poets, Hazel Hogan and Eoin Rogers.
The aim of the workshops would be to delve into the craft of poetry and the makings of a poem, and to learn through analysis and generative workshopping. Over the five weeks, you will gain a greater understanding of your work, your personal strengths and areas in which you can improve upon.
Through the five weeks, we will explore the poets toolbox and the makings of a poem.
It will be led on a weekly zoom meeting with the chance to follow up with feedback of three submitted poems on a bi-weekly basis.
The group will be a small size, to offer maximum attention to each student and their work, from both facilitators.
