Paul Henry | Poetry Course: Poems after Poems

This week long residential course is hosted by award-winning Welsh poet and musician Paul Henry. The course aims to help you develop your poetry by exploring how new poems can emerge from existing ones. Daily writing workshops will interpret “afterness” in its broadest sense and  In addition to morning workshops, individual tutorials will offer technical guidance in redrafting your work. You will write from a wide range of source poems, sharing new reading and reflecting on how writing “after” can enrich and lend authority to our art. Poems ‘after’ Poems welcomes both new and experienced poets to develop their craft within a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Please bring along some of your favourite poems. Described by the late U.A. Fanthorpe as 'a poet's poet', Paul Henry came to poetry through songwriting and has published seven poetry collections with Seren. A popular Creative Writing tutor, his latest collection is The Glass Aisle (Seren 2018). He will be joined on Wednesday evening by Guest Poet, Sarah Hymas.
