Paul Henry

Described by the late U.A. Fanthorpe as 'a poet's poet' who combines 'a sense of the music of words with an endlessly inventive imagination', Paul Henry came to poetry through songwriting. Born in Aberystwyth and now based in Crickhowell, his work has been widely anthologised and regularly appears in journals as diverse as Poetry Wales and The TLS. A popular creative writing tutor, he ran Ledbury Festival's Poetry Cafe at Hereford's Courtyard theatre and is a regular tutor at writers' centres. He's also taught at the University of South Wales and has guest-edited Poetry Wales. Mari d'Ingrid, a translation of his fifth book, Ingrid's Husband (Seren), was published in France by L'Harmattan. His new and selected poems, The Brittle Sea, appeared in 2010. This was followed in 2012 by its Indian version, The Black Guitar. A regular reader and performer at festivals, he has recently written and presented arts programmes for BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4. His latest collection, Boy Running, was published in February 2015.

The value of learning from a broad range of poetic voices will underscore workshops partly inspired by the inner landscape of Memory and by the stunning dales surrounding the retreat.
