Poetry

Using everything: expanding your poetic field of images and influences

Monday July 15th - Saturday July 20th 2019

Totleigh Barton

This course will inspire participants to fold their personal and cultural worlds into their poetry. By exploring the poem as a space of endless potential connectivity and symbolism, writers will expand their work with new points of references and influences, allowing for poems that accumulate, reach, and interact in exciting and surprising ways.

Single room price: £795

Grants are available to help with the course fee
