Distance/Perspective/Intimacy with Kim Moore and Carola Luther

During this course we will look at distance and intimacy in our own and other people’s poetry, experimenting with perspective and aspects of form to create new work that will challenge and excite.  There will be plenty of workshops and time to write your own poems, as well as opportunities for feedback on your work from the group, and a one-to-one tutorial with one of the tutors.  There will also be readings from the tutors and guest poet Ann Gray will perform mid-week.  The course fee includes workshops, accommodation, breakfast, three course evening meals and a cream tea each day.
