Poets Éireann Lorsung (eireannlorsung.ohbara.com) and Laressa Dickey (laressadickey.com) will lead the retreat, offering two craft talks and several other activities (morning yoga, writing exercises, individual tutorials/workshops), all of which are completely optional.
Although both leaders are poets, you don’t have to be a poet to come along. Both Éireann and Laressa are versed (so to speak) in other forms and happy to welcome prose writers of all stripes.
The retreat will take place from Friday, September 16 at 5 p.m., until Sunday, September 18, at noon. The cost of the retreat has been subsidised by Writing East Midlands; it is £50 for a shared room or £70 for a single. This covers accommodation and all food.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and places are very limited, so please book early
