Registration


A poet needs both something to write about and skill in writing. We will focus on these two themes so important in strong poetry - mastering elements of craft and finding inspiration.

Each week we will do some writing in class and a homework task will be set so that we can share what we've written the following week. 

Teaching will cover how to write stronger poetry and where to find sources of inspiration.  

All levels of experience welcome.

About the instructor: David Barnes is a British poet who has run a weekly writers' workshop at Shakespeare & Company and an open mike poetry night every Monday (SpokenWord Paris) for a decade. He is the Editor in Chief of The  Bastille, the literary magazine of SpokenWord Paris. His poetry has been published in a number of magazines. He was the co-editor of Strangers in Paris - New Writing Inspired by the City of Light (2011, Tightrope Books) which included work by such writers as Alice Notley, Jorie Graham and John Berger. He has previosuly taught classes for WICE in short fiction, travel writing and turning life into fiction.
