The Poetry Summer School
The Seamus Heaney Poetry Summer School is an annual intensive week of creative development for emerging poets, with seminars, workshops and one-to-one tutorials, alongside a programme of readings and other evening events. Time is scheduled for writing and the development of new work, as well as to explore and engage with the rich literary networks in the city.
The Poetry Summer School is led by Professor Nick Laird.
The Summer School ran online in 2020 for the first time. Find out more about it here.
Writers' Rooms - Poetry Summer School edition
The Poetry Summer School took place in many locations around the world this year, in our first ever online course.
Here, we meet out of the virtual space, as Summer School poets from all over the UK and Ireland, Canada and the US, invite us into their writing rooms to share their work and inspirations.
