“Receiving feedback and critique in such depth was brilliant and it was interesting how the tutors had very different opinions on aspects of certain poems – addressing form and language and the thread of consistency, the latter which I need to focus on! Everyone’s poetry was so diverse in style, tone, image and form throughout the week. I enjoyed discovering new voices, in particular Maggie Nelson and Tom Leonard’s earlier work.” Lorraine Carey
