For Ezra Pound
il miglior fabbro.
(The better crasftsman.)
– T.S Eliot’s dedication, The Wasteland, 1922.
For some, the act of writing can be seen as highly individual, even solitary in nature.
However, with the amount of participation in creative writing courses of various types over the past several years, there is a definite engagement with the craft of writing, and the social element a course entails. Courses of this type cannot generate publishable work from scratch, but provide a space to present it, nurture interest and confidence, and sharpen talent and direction. We as writers can benefit greatly from this type of creative collaboration, a way of seeing our work from a fresh perspective and pushing its best qualities on to their full potential, much as Eliot and Pound displayed in the dynamics of their relationship.

please can you let me have an idea of how much it would cost?
many thanks, Karen
Hi Karen, thanks for your enquiry.
In-depth feedback and discussion on a set of around 6-10 poems would cost £20. Once we have an idea about the style and themes of your work we can discuss some further reading and relevant writing excercises as part of the tutoring. I’m also offering a follow up session for participants so we can see how their work is changing and developing as they continue to write, and provide further support.
If you’re interested in being involved or would like any more information feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon!
