Rosalind Hudis | Tŷ Newydd Digital Taster Course – Poetry & Science

In this Digital Taster Course for Tŷ Newydd run by Rosalind Hudis, you will look at the link between poetry and science, and the science of poetry. You'll spend a little time exploring some of the ways poets have embraced science topics in lyric poetry. Then it’s your turn: after choosing a short sample of science writing, you’ll be guided through a step-by-step approach to transform it into the first draft of a lyric poem. No previous scientific knowledge required! You will leave the course with a renewed energy, the elements and ideas on how to get started. The workshop will last an hour, but time has been set aside to settle in at the beginning to ask questions, and for discussions with your fellow writers at the end.

The Tŷ Newydd taster courses series offers a whistle-stop tour of various genres and themes in both English and Welsh, to continue to inspire your writing during the winter months. Participant numbers for each taster course will be capped at 20, and the course will be delivered through the video platform Zoom. 

Course fees start at £12 per person. Visit to book your place.
