Interesting, very well-run course, with input and teaching by many excellent poets and playwrights. Although I couldn't put as much time into the course as I would have liked - especially in the last weeks, I learnt a lot and found the assignments nicely challenging. The routine of writing and submitting one's own work and commenting on the work of others strengthens one's own abilities and, I hope, adds extra perspective to the work of others.
