Develop your Writing: Summer Course in Sweden

From July, 30 to August, 1, our colleague and prize-winning English poet Gale Burns (Kingston University) will be delivering this workshop at Skurups folkhögskolas, near Malmo

A great chance to examine your own experience and history of writing, and build on this through the study of exciting recent work in English language poetry. In a friendly and constructive environment, students will take their work in surprising directions, get feedback from others, and for those that wish, give an informal reading at the end of the week.

Participants should have some creative writing experience, whether large or small, in any genre and be comfortable reading and talking in English. You can write in English or Swedish, but tutor feedback is only available in English.
