April 10-12




Progressing Your Poetry with Ian Duhig -  £190  Book Now

April 24-26

Martin Carthy once said, "I regard tradition as progressive, and a traditional song as a progressive force"; in the home of the border ballad and Maddy Prior, this course will help members review their approaches to poetry and investigate progressive strategies to generate new work reflecting their personal and political experience through workshops, exercises and one-to-one tutorials in a supportive, inspiring and beautiful environment. Suitable for writers at all levels.


I have gained so much from my visits to Stones Barn; my confidence and my singing technique have improved immensely, and I've met some wonderful people, who I'm sure will be friends for many years to come.
