The beautiful grounds and gardens of Brantwood with Coniston Water, the Old Man and Dow Crag across the lake, the light and airy classroom next to Ruskin’s Studio all provide a relaxing and inspirational setting in which to write and reflect.

Coniston and the Old Man
Place and the Imagination:
How does place influence your poetry? How do we create poems that are anchored in the senses yet are free to explore inner or imagined places? Imagination-based poetry moves away from the traditional approach to writing poetry and, through dreams, the unconscious and surrealism, allows the writer to create space for the imagination to explore, invent and roam.
Workshops will comprise a series of writing prompts and a variety of stimuli enabling you to create new poems in a supportive environment. There will be time for group and tutor feedback as well as one to one tutorials. Some sessions will take place outdoors. Non-residential option available.  Meals and refreshments provided.
