Advanced Poetry Seminar

UK poet? Close to first or second collection? This poetry seminar sounds like the biz.

14 - 18 March 2011
Now open for nominations / applications
Deadline: 17 January 2011

Stretched, challenged and propelled and Undoubtedly one of the best weeks of my life – this is how two previous participants described their experience of the Aldeburgh Seminar, an outstanding professional and creative development opportunity for poets early in their publishing careers.

The Poetry Trust is looking for a maximum of eight UK poets either at first collection or between first and second collection stage to participate in this residential course. Led by Michael Laskey and Peter Sansom – two exceptional poets/tutors with strong editorial experience – the course will include new writing exercises, workshopping poems, one-to-one surgeries, close readings and a session in a theatre to offer practical help on how to deliver good live readings.
Over five days, participants will stay and learn together at Bruisyard Hall, a 14th century atmospheric and spacious retreat in rural Suffolk.

Tuition, accommodation and all meals are included in the highly subsidised cost of £295 per participant.
