Poetry Sanctuary with James 2017

James Dewar's Poetry Sanctuary Days

Poetry Sanctuary is a full day retreat that includes a short lesson on a specific aspect of the craft of poetry, writing prompts to inspire participants to practice these aspects and produce three or more new poems, and lots of silent time for writing and/or revision.

Participants will also have the opportunity to share their work in group readings and receive private feedback from James if they choose that option. The objectives are to learn something new about the craft of writing poetry, write new poems, work on revision, and share poetry together in a welcoming and inclusive group setting.
Uplands is located in a beautiful, secluded valley on the Oak Ridges Moraine only twenty minutes north of Whitby, and less than an hour’s drive from downtown Toronto.

Enrollment is limited to ensure a high quality of mentorship and group interaction.
