from Coffee-House Poetry organiser, Anne-Marie Fyfe

Thu 10 Sep:

Fancy spending Fall-2020 finding your way through ‘form’ in Between the Lines, season 5, Focus on Form? A seven-week autumn course on poetic craft with the chance – the challenge – to use each newly-introduced form to write new work each week & share in a critical workshop process with fellow poets. From Mon 12 Oct, detail/booking info via classes page.

Also on classes, the new Avian Eye 4-wk course, a fascinating, fast-moving, four-week creative-writing exploration of birds, fabulous & familiar, magical & metaphorical…

And keep a lookout (emails & website) for more great Coffee-House Poetry autumn activity, including our annual Troubadour International Poetry Prize with Mark Doty & Mona Arshi waiting to read all your fine poems (deadline Mon 28 Sep, £3,500 in prizes, more info on prizes page).

Solitude – theme of our recent 4-wk course – is obviously very much in vogue as I’ve been enjoying a short BBC Radio4 series on the subject (the first night’s on ‘anchorites’) to which I’ve just ‘listened-again’ as, at broadcast-time, I was on a v. unsolitary Zoom, hearing some of you read from Florida, Illinois, Portugal, London, Bath & Yorkshire: & we were treated to a turned-around laptop-camera panorama of a magnificently pink Scarborough sunset!
Stay safe, & all best wishes,
