Guest at the Hurst

It was great to be the guest reader last Wednesday evening at the Hurst, the John Osborne Arvon Centre in Shropshire, on the Poetry and Starting to Write course led by Peter and Ann Sansom. I was lucky enough to co-tutor a young people’s course at the Hurst a couple of weeks earlier. It’s such an amazing place – I can’t recommend the Arvon Foundation writing courses highly enough.
