At the beginning of April I’m returning to the inspirational surroundings of Cove Park for Freeing the Poets Voice, a selected week-long residency that I’ll be undertaking along with eight other poets. We’ll be working with the world renonwned voice coach Kristin Linklater on developing our authentic speaking voices.

I visited this amazing artist’s retreat for two weeks in 2010 as part of the Fielding Programme and I can’t wait to go back for what promises to be an exciting and challenging week.
