sonnets

The British Library’s outstanding collection provides the starting point for this immersive encounter with Shakespeare’s sonnets. Taking inspiration from 400 years of poetic responses to Shakespeare, you’ll write your own poems, receive continuous feedback and create a Renaissance-style anthology to celebrate your work.
The summer school is led by Simon Pomery. Expert contributors include British Library curators Adrian Edwards and Dr Richard Price, and acclaimed poets Mimi Khalvati and Professor Michael Symmons Roberts.
