Poet in Residence - Dartington Trust Gardens, Dartington Trust
Deadline: Tue 30 Nov 2021
We are looking for a Poet in Residence for our Grade II* Listed Gardens for 2022. The position is open to any poet in the UK and will run from January to December 2022.

The poet in residence will make four weekend trips to Dartington, one in each season to write a poem about the gardens– winter, spring, summer, and autumn. We will pay a fee of £1,000 and cover the costs of accommodation and travel for four visits. The poems will be shared on the Dartington Trust digital channels, in events at the Totnes Bookshop, and in workshops with students.

We are especially interested to hear from candidates from backgrounds and communities that are under-represented in the publishing and arts sectors, including black, minority ethnic, and disabled candidates.

Poet Alice Oswald and writer Dr Martin Shaw will select a small number of candidates for interview. Both writers are core teaching staff for MA Poetics of Imagination at Dartington Arts School, which focuses on orality and story.

We are exceptionally proud of the landscape and are excited to recruit a poet to be able to communicate some of the magic it contains, in a way that only poetry can.

The deadline is midnight on 30th November 2021
