Jonathan Edwards | Working the Body

Jonathan Edwards is guest reading on this week long course which will consider how best to articulate our thoughts about the body; the body praised, the body mourned, the body touched, the body in decline, the body in ecstasy; how we can translate the paradoxically physical and ephemeral body into poetry on a page. An exciting and engaging course which will use workshops, close readings and discussion to explore the body in a poem and the body as a poem. Our bodies, and the bodies of those around us, are often how we first make contact with the outside world and how we articulate our own experience of living and dying. During this course we can think how best this experience might be translated onto the page. Tutors are Andrew McMillan and Helen Mort. For further information and to book visit
