From First Draft to Polished Work

In this one-day workshop, through group discussions, examples, practical exercises and plenty of handy tips, John Glenday will show how there are actually two forms of inspiration involved in the writing and nurturing of a poem. We’ll be exploring both, to create new work and practice techniques for turning that tetchy first draft into something vibrant, engaging and accessible to a reader.

John Glenday is the author of four poetry collections. The Apple Ghost (Peterloo Poets, 1989) won a Scottish Arts Council Book Award and Undark, was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation for 1995. His third collection, Grain (Picador, 2009), was also a PBS Recommendation and shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award and the Griffin International Poetry Prize. His most recent collection, The Golden Mean (Picador, 2015), won the Roehampton Poetry Prize and was shortlisted for the Saltire Scottish Poetry Book of the Year.
