Tutors – Keith Jarrett and Rosie Garland, with guest Jay Bernard

Let’s get ourselves a little moon cottage in Devon and dream the queer future we all want to see.
During this dynamic week, tutors Keith Jarrett and Rosie Garland will support and encourage you to develop your voice as a queer poet, alongside like-minded writers in an inclusive environment.
During workshops you’ll explore a wide variety of queer poetry from poets past and present, always with a focus on your own writing through lots of playful and powerful prompts and exercises. With plenty of time for discussion, questions and group work, there will also be opportunities for individual feedback from your tutors, where you’ll be offered guidance on ways to develop and craft your poems.
Expect fun, discovery and plenty of writing on this week for LGBTQI+ writers at any stage of their careers.
