Sensing Place: Presence and Absence with Lindsey Holland and Andrew Forster
Mon 2 Nov 2015 to Thu 5 Nov 2015
How can we capture the spirit of a landscape though poetry? How can we use history to write poems that speak to our times?

Spend three nights in Ponden Hall, as close as you can get to being in Wuthering Heights itself. The building is rich with evidence of its links to the Brontës and even earlier histories, nestling above Ponden reservoir, beside the Haworth moors.

Through a combination of writing exercises, discussion, reading poems by other writers, one-to-one tutorials and tours and walks, tutors Lindsey Holland and Andrew Forster, editors of The Compass, will help you create new poems in this magical location. Workshops are suitable for beginners or those with some experience who are looking for new inspirations and a fresh approach, and there will be plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere and just write.
