A new, introductory course!
January 6, 2011
Poetry is language in orbit – Seamus Heaney
If you feel you could do with some help to get more out of reading and talking about poems, this is the introductory course for you.
Reading for pleasure is a world away from studying for exams, but it still helps to brush up on some basics, explore new writers and styles – and feel confident and excited about enjoying poetry.
Friendly and encouraging ‘absolute beginners’ course on reading poetry for pleasure * Explore rhyme and form * go beyond the printed page * discover new poetry with expert advice * develop your reading strengths * pick up a ‘toolkit’ of technical terms * get a personal plan of what to read next
Led by Lilias Fraser, Reader Development Officer, and Julie Johnstone, Librarian, from the Scottish Poetry Library.
Dates: Saturdays 22 January, 29 January, 5 February, 12 February
Where: Scottish Poetry Library, 5 Crichton’s Close
