"Having attended Jackie's workshop on 30th September I'd highly recommend these for all poets at whatever level of experience/ confidence. The ideas/exercises Jackie set up were really stimulating and led to fascinating poems from other workshop members, as well as great discussion. We came away with a range of poems to work on. Treat yourself to an excellent day - we all deserve it!" Poet Robert Hamberger

"Excellent workshop with Jackie Wills today. We did a writing exercise based around questions. I can't stop writing them now. " Novelist Allie Rogers


I am running small group poetry workshops for just six people in Brighton in 2017 and 2018. Limiting numbers will allow more time to read back work and for discussion. I also like the connections that happen in small groups. 

Each workshop will combine reading poems by contemporary writers with a number of writing exercises to generate new work. 

Time: Saturdays 11am - 4pm 

2018 dates here soon

Venue: Brighton (address on booking)

One session costs £40, payable in advance (no refunds for cancellations seven days or less before workshop).
