This online poetry course is an ideal way to explore the business of poetry under the guidance of a published poet.
It is equally suitable for aspiring poets on the initial rung of their journey, poets working towards a first collection or poets who have already published.
The ‘lost’ element of title refers to how poetry, like any other narrative source, can be mined from life experience whether first hand or otherwise. ‘Found’ refers to poetry that is already out there in the public domain, poetry in the guise of advertisements, notices in shop windows, horoscopes, recipes, bulletin boards, legal documents or indeed, any text which doesn’t necessarily appear to possess poetic possibility. The Lost and Found Poetry Workshop also encourages experimentation with form and content through the re-structuring of existing material. Opening the storehouse of memory will also be part of the workshop process.
