Anne Lister

Stare at the blank page no longer – be inspired to get creative and write. And let’s use the incredible Anne Lister as our focus and inspirational muse.

At the heart of these lively and enjoyable workshops, will be the creation of new and exciting work. Whichever course you choose, a key focus will be the development and celebration of your writing. And remember, these workshops are for you, whether you’re a published writer or just beginning to put pen to paper. We all started somewhere, and we all have more to learn.


I’m passionate about poetry courses being accessible to all. I love to use Zoom, and workshops are priced on a sliding scale. There are also 2 free places per workshop.

If you’d like to learn more about me, my work and background, then please look at my about me page, or if there’s anything else you’d like to know you can also contact me.

Anne Lister Poetry Workshops

There are a few poetry courses to choose from. Each workshop within the course is ‘stand- alone’. You don’t need to attend all the workshops to follow the course (though it would be lovely if you did).

I’m really looking forward to meeting you. And guiding you to create some incredible poetry.
