Moving Poetry Series

Since December 2004, Moving Poetry has held a sequence of workshops on campus at The University of Hong Kong. Already seven successful series have been held, and we look forward to hosting more small workshops in both the Beginner and Intermediate level with published poets on campus in the future. Moving Poetry plans to have different levels of classes, from beginners to advanced levels in the future, so the students will have continuity in creative writing. This series is by invitation only.

Published poets will be teaching the Moving Poetry Series classes in Winter and/or Spring, held in the Main Building at The University of Hong Kong.

Four Workshops: One class per week for each student, 2 and a half hours per session (including a short break), will be offered.

Ten hours of workshop: There will be a total of 9 class hours, plus an extra hour on the last day for recognition of students' achievements, making a total of 10 hours for each student.

*Small classess: Each class will have a minimum of 15 and no more than 20 students. The students will receive weekly assignments, and by the end of the course they will have learned skills entitling them to earn a certificate of achievement in writing from Moving Poetry and even an award or merit-based scholarship.

*Moving Poetry holds the right to cancel scheduled classes that do not meet the minimum enrolment, unexpected change of personnel and bad weather conditions.

Tuition: Each student will be charged HK$1,860 for a total of 10 hours per course.

(Students who require financial assistance could apply for Need-Based Scholarhip during the registration period. Applicants should provide valid supporting documents before the end of the registration period. Based on a case-to-case approval, Moving Poetry may offer partial or a full scholarship to students requiring financial assistance to cover the tuition fee of the enrolled set of Moving Poetry workshops.)
