The StAnza Masterclass

Led by Gillian Allnutt

Join us for our ever popular masterclass. This year, Gillian Allnutt, poet, teacher, journalist and Queen’s Gold Medalist for Poetry 2016, offers in-depth critique and comment on selected, submitted poems. The session will also provide an opportunity for critical input from the audience.

Submission Details

To have your work considered for inclusion in the masterclass, send one poem of up to 35 lines in a single Word or RTF attachment (NB: not PDF) to no later than 18 February, with your name, phone number and email address and quoting the reference number on the event ticket. Those whose poems are chosen will be notified before 10 March. We will be particularly pleased to receive poems which engage with either of the themes of this year’s festival, Borderlines or The Self.
