Led by Liz Berry, this 12-week course will help you get to grips with key elements of writing poetry, from imagery and metaphor to how the poem looks on the page and sounds to the ear. You’ll learn how to explore the power of language and as a result, begin to develop your own voice.

Your efforts will be rewarded with a Certificate of Completion from the University of East Anglia* and Writers’ Centre Norwich.
