Poetry: The Joy of Making

Residential writing course led by poets, Simon Williams and Susan Taylor: 18 September, 4.00pm - 23 September, 10.00am.

In its earliest form, a poem was any 'thing made or created' and it's the making of new work and its presentation that we'll concentrate on in this course. Through the study of surprising poems and writing from prompts of all kinds - including the beautiful surroundings of Garsdale - we'll share our work on the page and out loud. In individual tutorials and group workshops, we'll focus on sharpening our techniques, liberating our voices and enjoying the buzz of creating new poems.

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

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