Playing with form and language

GENRE: Poetry
Lumb Bank

During the week, participants will be encouraged to explore a diversity of poetic forms and uses of language, such as open form, collage and juxtaposition. We will bring to bear our background in what is often referred to as the UK’s ‘innovative’ poetry scene, introducing you to the approaches of British and American experimental poets as a means of encouraging you to play and take risks in your own work. Suitable for new poets and more experienced writers who would like to explore innovative poetic techniques, throw over old habits, or push their work further.

Single room price: £725
Shared room price: £680
