Katrina Naomi | Arvon at Home Masterclass

Giving Your Poetry Some Oomph! Ready to up your game? Join this masterclass led by Katrina Naomi where we’ll read and write poems that demand to be noticed. We’ll look at risk-taking poems, those with a generous dash of flamboyance, poems laced with sparky ideas, outstanding titles and gorgeous last lines. Writers at all stages welcome. The masterclass will be delivered via Zoom and will last two hours  including time for you to write. You will need to have a computer or smart device and a reliable internet connection in order to participate. This is a live event only and it will not be recorded. There are limited number of grants available for people on low-income. These are allocated on a first come first served basis.
