I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be co-tutoring with the amazing Amanda Dalton at next year’s Poetry Residential at Treloyhan Manor in St Ives. This course always sells out fast, so if you’d like to come, ring the hotel below to secure your place. Amanda was one of my favourite teachers when I was studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, so I’m really excited to be working with her in St Ives.
The course is running from the 8th-13th April 2019 and costs £550. This includes breakfast, three course evening meal, scones with jam and cream in the afternoons, accommodation, workshops and a tutorial with either myself or Amanda during the week.
If you’d like to book, please give the hotel a ring on 01736 796240.
