To celebrate our wonderful world this course will discuss a range of poetry. We’ll look at poems that focus on the natural world and all its wonders; poems that celebrate human emotions and poems that are full of joy. In doing so we will take the opportunity to explore a rich diversity of poetic voices.

No prior reading or knowledge required; just enjoy some wonderful, life affirming poetry. Copies of the poems will be provided.

Please note: Due to social distancing measures, face to face classes currently have a capacity of 12 students. We will endeavor to review this number in line with the lifting of Government restrictions.
