Winter Warmer Poetry Retreat
February 3 at 6:00 pm - February 5 at 5:00 pm
Join poets Katrina Naomi and Fiona Benson and develop your poetry at our second residential weekend at the beautiful Trevadlock Manor in the heart of the Cornish countryside near Launceston.
Join Katrina & Fiona for a nurturing writing weekend in beautiful east Cornwall, to warm you through the last dregs of winter and inspire you for the coming months of spring. Workshop sessions will focus on equipping you with tools to nourish, motivate and inspire your inner writer. You will engage in creative play, use both personal and more general research, adopt new poetic techniques to refresh your poetry, take meditative group walks and find ways to flip your creative switch to ‘on’. You will also think about author self-care – how to stay grounded in the face of social media and all the other aggravations of a writer’s world.
You will write poems of endurance, exploring winter rituals and the myths of returning spring; and poems of resilience, finding how to use our voice in the face of inequality and political transgression. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your work one on one with both Fiona and Katrina. Participating poets will be asked to bring a favourite poem of endurance/survival.
Residential packages start at £550 and day attendance packages are £300. For full details see our dedicated website page.
