General information

Leontia Flynn will conduct a six-day course in writing poetry in the summer of 2024. Participants will study the elements of writing a poem by reading closely a variety of poems by historical as well as contemporary poets. Summer school students will have time for independent writing in response to set exercises, and sessions in which they receive feedback on their work from the tutor and other participants.

By developing and redrafting their poetry in response to group discussion and workshops, as well as through reading and experiment, the summer school will give students the chance to begin and revise individual poems, as well as to build up a body of work.


Tallinn Summer School arranges accommodation for foreign participants at student dormitory (5-minutes walk from the university, double and triple rooms)
