The eagerly anticipated Nottingham Poetry Festival returns from 26 April until 5 May. Get ready to experience a range of fantastic spoken word events from some of the country’s best-loved poets across the city.

Join poet, Sandeep Parmar for a masterclass on the role of the poetry critic, the value of poetry, and how to be a critic.

Learn approaches to reviewing, explore questions of style and voice, and modes of critical reading.

Sandeep Parmar is Professor of English Literature at the University of Liverpool. She holds a PhD from University College London and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia.

Her books include Reading Mina Loy’s Autobiographies: Myth of the Modern, an edition of the Collected Poems of Hope Mirrlees (Carcanet, 2011), and two books of her own poetry published by Shearsman: The Marble Orchard and Eidolon, winner of the Ledbury Forte Prize for Best Second Collection.

Her essays and reviews have appeared in the Guardian, The Los Angeles Review of Books, the Financial Times and the Times Literary Supplement. She is a 2015 BBC New Generation Thinker and co-founded the Ledbury Emerging Poetry Critics scheme for BAME reviewers.

This masterclass is suitable for ages 14 and over, and would be a great session for poets seeking to understand poetry critique as a way to further develop their writing.

If you have any enquiries, please contact Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature via email: contactus@nottmcityoflit.org

The masterclass runs from 1.00pm- 4.00pm in Metronome’s bar with a short break for refreshments at 2.30pm
