It was a wonderful session today, deeply inspiring. Everyone was at the top of their game, and there was such good writing from all the participants.

We looked at Carol Ann Duffy’s poem ‘Prayer‘ (see YouTube) – one of her most moving – to show the way that imagery can be inserted into a poem with surgical precision and be so effective.

Homework is to look at the poem again, and try to create a piece of prose or poetry inspired by it, preferably in the 1st person!
