Gillian Clarke & Jonathan Edwards | Autumn Poetry Masterclass, Ty Newydd

This masterclass is aimed at committed poets aiming to further develop their writing. The tutors are former National Poet of Wales, Gillian Clarke and Jonathan Edwards whose first collection, the Costa Prize winning My Family and Other Superheroes (Seren, 2014), also received the Wales Book of the Year People's Choice Award, as did his second collection Gen (Seren 2018). The week will feature a group workshop each morning to prompt the creation of new poems, individual writing time, and free afternoons for writing or gaining inspiration from Tŷ Newydd’s beautiful surroundings. You will also enjoy two evening poetry readings: one by the tutors, and the other by a visiting poet. The course will end with the creation of an anthology featuring work created by the participants and tutors, and a celebratory evening of readings in the library. This course will challenge and inspire writers looking to develop the shape, music and imaginative possibilities of their poetry. For further information and to book visit:
