Last few days to register for 'Appreciation of Poetry' course

There are just a few days left to book for 'Appreciation of Poetry' - the evening course I will be teaching for the Centre for Adult Learning at NUI Galway again, starting in early October. The NUI Galway short courses booklet is linked here with course information on page 4 and a registration form at the back. Please spread the word! 
Erato, Muse of Lyric Poetry by Charles Meynier (1800)
Here are what previous course participants said:
"Friendly, informative approach, great poems chosen to illustrate course, the fact that the tutor is a poet and the handbook. Would definitely instill a love of/appreciation of poetry." 
"I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of themes presented and illustrated. We were challenged to enter into the spirit of the course. I was encouraged to write again after a pause of several years."
"Our tutor was very encouraging as well as great fun! Access to poems from a variety of different poets – many of whom I had never heard of!"
"Enjoyed course very much. Teaching very engaging, passionate and encouraging. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Great to get emails from teacher, notes, slides, etc. and the half-time break!"
"This course was most interesting and a lot of fun. Each session was very well researched and presented."
"The breadth of vision of the course and the teaching style of our lecturer. The classes were enlightening and fun."
