In this online course, award-winning author Alicia Sometimes 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, imagery as well as helpful tips for fine tuning.

Once a month from July to November, you’ll submit up to 60 lines of poetry. 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, this is the course for you. Please note, while you are welcome to generate new material for submission during this time, no prompts or themes will be provided.
