Very helpful – honest – affirming

Exceptional, supporting yet challenging, showing (and earning) respect, a privilege to
attend this leader’s workshop;
serendipity but fabulous; contributed very generously ­ great value for money;
I got more from two days with Les’ workshop than I did over a postgraduate year at university

OK, you write & are starting to think it may be better if your work gets out there into the wider world, on to a new level. This is for you, all styles, all ages. Les' workshops are known for their constructive & friendly orientation. This workshop will have an emphasis on the nuts and bolts of establishing a poetry audience. A key component of the two days will be traditional workshopping where 3 of each participant's poems are discussed collaboratively. But this won't be all that's covered. Participants will benefit greatly from applying insider's hints on how the poetry scene works. Poems are examined with a view to finding outlets that fit your style... all in addition to intensive editorial feedback. Other topics include running your own projects, taking up opportunities offered by the internet & getting your book published. Everyone who so wishes will have their poems published in an established internet magazine. Experience has shown this approach is highly effective… combining practical information with an artistic dialogue among peers over a solid block of time.

Participant requirements

Please bring 15 copies of 3 poems for workshopping in the course.


Tea and coffee making facilities will be provided. Course participants are advised to bring their own lunch as there are no cafes within easy walking distance.
