In this workshop series for published poets, Damian will explore what can get in your way as poets, and how you might best "go, and go again". With the agreement of the group he might set "homeworks", if that isn't a terrible term. These would, of course, be entirely optional.
The focus will be on enjoyment, and learning to look after the music at the heart of your poetry.
