British filmmaker Helen Dewbery, co-editor of Poetry Film Live, is also now Poetry Film Editor for Spelt Magazine, a new print and online journal “celebrating and validating the rural experience” and offering online courses through the Spelt Nature Writing School. Accordingly, Helen is offering a two-hour Zoom course called Poetry Film: How to Say What You Really Mean on the 29th of October.

Following on from the popularity of Helen’s previous Spelt workshop, we’ve invited her back to run another workshop in her new role as Spelt Poetry Film Editor. In this two hour workshop Helen will help you with the practicalities of making a poetry film and the ways in which the medium can be used to enhance the poem.

This workshop is open to any level of writer, from those who have never tried to make a poetry film, to those who want to expand their knowledge.

This is a zoom based workshop which will run on Saturday 29th October 11am to 1pm (UK Time)

The cost is £17.00

You will be emailed a zoom link the day before the workshop.

Spelt remains unfunded and as such if this course does not sell the requisite number of places to go ahead it may be cancelled.

This course has one bursary place attached to it for a writer in receipt of benefits.
