Poetry: Tutored Retreat

Placing your words

October 15th - October 20th 2018

Totleigh Barton

This tutored retreat will give you the opportunity to closely examine your work, not just on the page but also in the context of your developing oeuvre, including where that is leading in terms of different kinds of publication, be that magazine, pamphlet or full collection. Gaining this focused overview will help you identify weaknesses in your approach, while being challenged to consider different directions for your writing can be a prompt to new work as well as a better evaluation of the old.
