Are you an aspiring or emerging young poet, aged 18 to 30 from or based in the north, and keen to focus on your writing practice?
Hive has teamed up with the Writing School to offer a discounted bursary place for a young poet on a residential writing retreat at the stunning Ty Newydd Writing Centre of Wales.
This bursary place offers a discount of over 50% for their upcoming Journey to the Centre of Poem retreat taking place Monday 24th to Saturday 29th April 2023.
This is a wonderful opportunity for a beginner or emerging young poet to develop their writing, work with professional writers (through workshops and one-to-one tutorial support) and immerse themselves in a week dedicated to all things poetry.
Residential retreats of this length and nature typically cost around £850-£900 full price. This Writing School retreat is already set up to be as affordable as possible at £610-£650 but we know it’s still a lot of money for many.
This discounted bursary reduces the cost to £300 which includes all workshop sessions, tutorials, readings and full board accommodation (dietary requirements catered for). All rooms have a desk. Sheets & towels are provided.
You don’t need to be a young poet with lots of experience to apply. Perhaps life is busy, or you don’t normally get these kinds of opportunities but you’ve been wanting to dedicate some time to growing a better writing practice. We welcome applications from anyone with a keenness to make the most of this opportunity and give time to their writing in a supportive, creative environment.
