Abstract

The contents of this book have developed from an opportunity within a university module to write about sport in a creative way in the form of sport’s poetry. The Sporting Image module at the University of Central Lancashire encourages students to consider some aesthetic dimensions of sport and focused upon poetry as a useful exercise in this direction. Through a process starting with a poetry writing workshop run for us by John Lindley, a professional poet based in Cheshire, and subsequent personal reflections on their creative work the students were asked to write their own poem as an appendix to their assignment. This publication is an attempt to showcase the creative work produced from this teaching initiative.
