The refining fire

GENRE: Poetry & Tutored Retreat
Lumb Bank

This week offers direction and specific guidance in the process of writing and revising poems. The emphasis is on developing both the imaginative force and the formal execution of your poetry in the context of best contemporary practice. It is geared towards poets who have already mastered the basics of the craft and will reward those who are seeking – and perhaps finding – publication.

After booking on the course, participants are invited to submit up to six poems. If you wish to submit poems in advance please email them to by 9 September 2017.

Single room price: £760
Shared room price: £710
