How to Enjoy Poetry Course with Hollie McNish and Luke Wright

I'll be teaching a week long residential course at the Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre in Wales with Hollie McNish. A course designed to focus on enjoying your writing, and relishing reading your work aloud, we will also be joined for a guest reading by the wonderful Luke Wright. This will be a great week spent well and in fine surroundings. 

Full details of the course can be found here.

Caught by the River Teifi

This August the good people at Caught by the River are hosting a week long festival of events, readings, workshops, music, art - everything the site is about, but in person, basically. The venue is the wonderful-looking Fforest, and the whole thing looks great... it can't really fail to be, can it?

I'll be running a workshop on writing about landscape during one of the days, and will also be in conversation with a real hero of mine, Jeb Loy Nichols, talking about writing, songs, poems, art and country music. 

The full line-up and more information can be found here:

There will also be a range of wine available and expert advice from The Vine Collective's resident expert Darren Smith.
