BLUE SKY POETRYWhat is re-visioning?

Have you got some poems that you’ve lived with, loved and despaired of over months or years? They’re not working but you don’t want to give up on them? Bring them along to this special Day School on re-visioning and editing and see if a radical rethink in terms of form or structure might help them to find their natural place in the world – and perhaps even publication in a journal or pamphlet? With the help of the group and tutor, we will explore strategies that can help you be objective about your poems in order to see them, and rewrite them, afresh.
