Intelligent and erudite but above all fun, John Whitworth's verse takes no prisoners. Through ballades and pantoums, anagrams and acrostics, sonnets, classical elegies and rhyming haiku, he will show you what poems can do. Loaded with irony and wit, Whitworth writes poems that have none of the drawbacks or intimidation of 'high poetry', but the formal sophistication and historical knowledge to continue its traditions.
