Every month, The Guardian's poetry workshop is hosted by a different poet who sets an exercise, chooses the most interesting responses and offers an appraisal of them. Each month I seem to visit their website in time to see I have missed the deadline, as there is a very narrow timeframe between the information about the workshop going online, and the close of the workshop.

Jen Hadfield's workshop
Jen Hadfield was presented with a Scottish Arts Council Writer's Bursary in 2002 and an Eric Gregory Award in 2003. Her first collection, Almanacs, was hailed by Kathleen Jamie as "the most refreshing debut for ages". Try your hand at her exercise on anti-praise poems.
