Writing the Land: Crafting Poems from Inspired Communion

Residential Course with leading poets Helen Moore(tutor) and Polly Atkin (guest reader): 21 August, 4.00pm - 26 August, 10.00am.

Through guided writing exercises, regular time outdoors and our reading from a broad range of poets and other sources, this course will develop your observations of the microcosmic (the flora and fauna characterising Garsdale) and attune your perceptions of the macrocosmic - the elemental and social forces that have shaped this place. As we hone your craft, we'll discover new ways of communing with and writing the land. Open to all writers who feel inspired by nature and ecology.

The course is held at The Garsdale Retreat set in the stunning beauty of The Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Course Fees (Includes fully catered meals): single/ensuite room: £750; single /shared bathroom: £700; shared room (2 beds) £650.
