I’m hoping that everyone who is booked to come on the course in St Ives this year will have already received this information directly from the hotel – but just in case you haven’t, I’m very sad to say that due to unforeseen circumstances, Amanda Dalton will not be able to co-tutor this year. Amanda and I hope that she will be able to come back and co-tutor on a course in 2020 at some point – I’ll keep you posted!
I’m very happy that the brilliant Carola Luther has agreed to co-tutor instead. I’ve worked with Carola on a previous residential and she was excellent and I’ve also been lucky enough to work with her as a student as well when I was starting out as a writer, so I know the participants in St Ives this year will be in good hands!
Our theme for this year’s course is ‘Distance/Perspective/Intimacy’ and I’ve already had some really interesting discussions with Carola on this topic, so I’m really looking forward to the writing and reading which will take place during the week.
I’m also really pleased to announce that our guest poet this year will be the fantastic Ann Gray. You can find out more information about Ann and Carola, the theme for the week and the course timetable here
If you are booked on the course, and haven’t received an email from the hotel with information about what you will need to bring with you and the change of tutor, please get in touch with me via my email, or contact the hotel directly.
