Manchester Saturday Sessions (January 2018)

One of three all-day workshop sessions with the Sansoms in Manchester.

Three individual sessions, each of which combines brilliant writing exercises with insightful, supportive feedback. These writing Saturdays will make a genuine difference to your poetry. A suggested reading-list and shared reading and writing tasks at home (between sessions) will further the group experience. Ann and Peter will alternate tutoring the days.

One all-day workshop on a Saturday 27 January 10:30am – 4pm.

More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.

It was my hope that the day would provide an interval in which to do some writing, and so it proved. But the real value was in setting me thinking along certain lines, working on a series of poems, which has come about as a consequence of attending.
