Deryn Rees-Jones | The Arvon Week Developing a personal poetics

Deryn Rees-Jones, Sasha Dugdale and Mark Ford are the tutors on this course for experienced poets who wish to advance their writing through the careful reading of other poets’ work. Over the week you will be exposed to a wide range of international and British work and we’ll look together at how you can use this work to develop your own poetics, themes and concerns. There will also be opportunities to focus on assembling a volume for publication and the final editing processes. The course is held in the wonderful setting of Lumb Bank. The house stands in 20 acres of steep woodland and has a breathtaking view to the valley below –  a Pennine landscape of woods and rivers, weavers’ cottages, packhorse trails and ruins of old mills. Deryn's fifth poetry collection, Erato (Seren 2019) is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation.  For further information about the course and to book visit:
