This course, Online Feedback: Poetry with Ivy Ireland, takes place online.

In this course, poet Ivy Ireland will provide feedback on your poetry in an online classroom environment, enabling you to hone your skills over five months. You’ll also give and receive peer feedback, and be able to consider the tutor’s feedback across all submissions. Feedback will vary depending on each submission, but may focus on areas such as structure, rhythm, tone and imagery, as well as helpful tips for fine-tuning.

We recommend that you complete at least one other creative writing course before enrolling in Online Feedback. By enrolling in this course, you are committing to giving and receiving feedback from peers and the tutor. Read this article here for more information.

Internet access and confidence using basic computer software are essential for this program.

Once a month you’ll submit up to two poems totalling a maximum of 55 lines. Your tutor will provide tailored feedback, giving you time to incorporate suggestions and advice into the next month’s submission. Each month, you can either submit new or previously submitted writing.

You’ll also have the opportunity to read and comment on other participants’ writing. This process of giving and receiving feedback from fellow writers is an ideal way to determine what works, what resonates, what falls flat – and how to improve.

This online course takes place on a website specifically designed for writers, making it simple and easy to share your writing, give and receive feedback, and interact with fellow writers.

If you’re ready to challenge yourself and develop your skills through constructive critique and independent work, this course is for you.

Please note: this is a feedback-based program. While you are welcome to generate new material for submission during this time, no prompts or themes will be provided.

Reviews

‘I loved the course. I thought Ivy’s critiques were very helpful and Wet Ink was a smooth experience.’ — Participant, 2023

‘The five round pace of the course over five months was just right. The suggested 55 line/two poems limit is appropriate. Most peers’ work was engaging, evocative, intelligent, well-crafted, and at times moving or humorous. The Wet Ink website is easy to navigate. Some peers offered generous feedback indicating their interest in the work of others, not just their own. Ivy’s feedback was always detailed, insightful, constructive and encouraging. I always read her critiques of others’ work in addition to her critique of my own work.’ — Angela, 2023
