Tell Me You’re X Without Telling Me You’re X: Poetry Course (Online)

About the course

In this poetry course, we’ll spend the first session looking at great poems, prompts and writing exercises, with no pressure to produce anything on the spot (because writing a poem is not performance art). Then we’ll reconvene a week later for sharing and feedback, so everyone has the time to work at their own pace.

Who is it for?

This poetry course is open to all underrepresented writers—those who face barriers due to mental health issues, physical health/disability, sensory impairment, learning disabilities, neurodivergence, substance misuse, survivors, working class backgrounds, those from the LGBTQIA+ community, and/or from Black, Asian, traveller, mixed heritage or other global majority backgrounds.

About the tutor

Kit Barry is a writer and game designer. He has won a Creative Future Writers’ Award for poetry, been long-listed for the BBC Drama Writer’s Room and the National Poetry Competition, shortlisted for Primers, and placed in a handful of competitions including Manchester Cathedral and Wenlock.


Tuesday 14 & 21 March, online via Zoom.


7 – 8.30 pm
