The Poetry Business


21 October 2023, 10:30am to 1:30pm

On Saturday, 21 October from 10:30am to 1:30pm, the Poetry Business in association with the James Joyce Centre presented Writing Morning with Ann and Peter Sansom, a rare chance to work with, as described by The Guardian, ‘the best writing teachers in the world.’

This demanding but hugely enjoyable morning drew on classic and contemporary poems to create new poems. In between there was a little discussion about the practice of writing and publication.

Ann and Peter are Co-Directors of The Poetry Business and editors of The North magazine and Smith|Doorstop Books. They have taught poetry at all levels including at Sheffield and Leeds Universities, and have tutored every year for The Arvon Foundation for over thirty years. Ann’s books include Romance and In Praise of Men & Other People (Bloodaxe) and Peter’s include Writing Poems (Bloodaxe), Careful What You Wish For, and Lanyard (Carcanet).

Tickets are €25 general, €20 unwaged.
