Poetry: Tutored Retreat
Developing strengths and finding new avenues
The house of poetry
Monday May 20th - Saturday May 25th 2019
This tutored retreat will give you a chance to reflect on your own work and process as a poet. There’ll be time to be alone with your poems and space to be inspired by walking, running, or simply sitting, looking and listening. We’ll create an encouraging atmosphere where you can focus on your poetry, while building your confidence to step back and see the bigger picture. Participants are invited to submit up to five poems to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20 April 2019. Tutors will look at this work, as well as work-in-progress created during the week’s tutorials.
Single room price: £795
