Kim Moore

Kim Moore’s first pamphlet ‘If We Could Speak Like Wolves’ was a winner in the Poetry Business 2012 Pamphlet Competition.  It subsequently went on to be named in the Independent as a ‘Book of the Year’ and was a runner up in the Lakeland Book of the Year Award.  It is currently shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award.  Kim was awarded an Eric Gregory Award in 2011.  She spends half her week as a peripatetic Brass Teacher for Cumbria Music Service and conducts the Barrow Shipyard Junior Band and the other half of the week doing poetry related activities – reading at poetry festivals, leading writing workshops and of course, writing poetry. 

The Holiday

On this popular short break you will take part in four, two hour workshops with each of the four tutors in the mornings and afternoons.  In the evening there will be poetry readings from the tutors and guest poets. Lunch will be provided each day along with refreshments.
