Winter Warmer: Poetry

The poetry workout

Monday February 25th - Saturday March 2nd 2019

Totleigh Barton

Aimed at poets of every level, this course will stimulate fresh work and encourage you to share it. Bring your notebooks and writing tools to explore the many ways poetry can bear witness to stories, politics, geographies and emotions in these turbulent times. You may have projects on the go or new ideas for poems that need a kick-start. As tutors we will suit the course to the individual needs of the participants. Come prepared to write, to be open to techniques, forms and approaches new and traditional.

Single room price: £795 
Shared room price: £745
