Poetry Business Writing Days in June

This month's Poetry Business Writing Days take place in Manchester on 22 June (date change) and Sheffield (29 June).

June Manchester Writing Day
Manchester Writing Days take place in the Manchester Art Gallery. This is a wonderful venue for a great day of writing from poems in the studio and from art in the gallery, along with brilliant writing exercises, supportive feedback, and excellent company. Suggested reading and optional writing tasks to be completed between the monthly sessions will further the experience.

Date: Saturday 22nd June 2019, 10:30am - 4:00pm
Location: Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, M2 3JL
Cost: Places are £40 or £35 (concs). Pay on the day -- by cash or cheque.

June Sheffield Writing Day
Sheffield Writing Days are open to all with brilliant writing exercises in the morning and an insightful and supportive critical workshop in the afternoon. Bring a poem (and ten copies) for the afternoon workshop — or better still write one up to discuss from the morning session.

They take place at North Church House, 84 Queen Street, S1 2DW (morning) and at our office on Campo Lane in the afternoon. North Church House is just a short walk from our office.

Date: Saturday 29th June 2019, 10:15am - 4:00pm
Location: North Church House/TPB offices, Sheffield S1 2DW
Cost: Please note that the Sheffield Writing Day cost has increased slightly to £35 and £30 concs. Pay on the day -- by cash or cheque.
