Deryn Rees-Jones and Katrina Naomi | The Personal and The Political, Residential Poetry Course

Led by Deryn Rees-Jones and Katrina Naomi, This course will draw on a range of examples from contemporary poetry that could assist us to develop our own writing, as well as consider various ways in which we might respond to political circumstance, both with reference to the wider world and with issues that affect us directly. As we address the ongoing challenges of continuing to develop our personal poetics there will also be opportunities to think about the processes involved in assembling poetic sequences and gathering poems into a full-length collection. Deryn Rees-Jones is a poet, editor and critic. Her selected poems, What It's Like To Be Alive, was published by Seren in 2016 and was a Poetry Book Society Special Commendation. Katrina Naomi's latest collection, The Way the Crocodile Taught Me (Seren, 2016), was chosen by Foyles’ Bookshop as one of its #FoylesFive for poetry.  For further information, including course fees and to book visit:
