Australian Poetry’s online courses provide poets nationally and internationally with the opportunity to connect with Australian poets and poetry. 2014 will see the return of some popular courses from 2013 – and introduce some new ones.
These courses are intended to be introductory ‘tasters’ for emerging poets, with a view to encouraging them to look critically at their own (and others’) work on a short term basis under the auspices of professional poets, rather than ongoing mentoring programs.
Our online courses usually commence with participants submitting their first poem a few days before the course starts. The tutor (and in some cases other participants) will respond with feedback and direction. Participants will then continue to submit their work, improving it based on feedback offered weekly, for the duration of the course. Requirements may vary from course to course. Please read the facilitator’s comments before enrolling.
There is a wide range of courses on offer across the year. For course details, visit: http://www.australianpoetry.org/programs/professional-development/
Please enrol by clicking the register button below each course listing. You will then receive confirmation that you’re in the course and be contacted a few days before the course begins by the relevant tutor.
