Poetry Residencies, The Wordsworth Trust


The Wordsworth Trust, through funding it receives from Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation, is running a series of month-long poetry residencies between December 2018 and March 2019.

The residency offers an exciting opportunity for exceptional poets, from any cultural background and writing within any literary tradition, to spend time in the heart of the Lake District, a World Heritage Site that so inspired William Wordsworth. You will have the opportunity to respond creatively to the Wordsworth Trust’s outstanding collection of manuscripts, books and fine art, to engage with the Trust’s educational and outreach programmes, in Grasmere and throughout Cumbria, and to contribute to our HLF-funded project, Reimagining Wordsworth.
