2012 Saturday Poetry Classes at the Grove, Cottesloe

Saturday Poetry Workshops were successful at the Grove Library in 2011 and OOTA will again offer this after-hours course in 2012. Tutor, Helen Hagemann.

It will consist of fortnightly Saturday Poetry Workshops for casual participants. Each Workshop will introduce contemporary poetry for those poets wanting to write contemporary poetry.  

Participation in the Workshops will cover the study of poems, discussion and several writing exercises. In a recent survey the consensus was that most writers wanted to continue with the same 2011 format, with a minor introduction o
f the classics and traditional poetry and its forms. Poets wishing to attend can view the times and dates here on this blog (under "Classes") and also on the Writing at the Centre blog. Classes are earmarked to start in 2012 on Saturday 4th February. 1.30pm-3.30pm.  

The Grove Library now has a coffee shop and we will continue to incorporate this social side of our poetry group after class. 

Venue: The Grove Library 1 Leake Street (Corner Stirling Highway) Peppermint Grove 

The venue is also close to the Cottesloe station with just a short walk along Napolean Street.
