    About this workshop

    Join this one-day workshop with award-winning BBC Radio 4 Poet-in-Residence, Daljit Nagra.


    Did you know

    The Poetry Please programme running on BBC Radio 4 marked its 25th year in 2004 and is known to be the longest running poetry programme broadcast anywhere in the world.


    In this workshop

    In this 1-day workshop, you will undertake writing exercises to help your work take on a deeper engagement with the foreign.

    • How do you write about distant, beautiful places without sounding politically naïve or patronising?
    • How do you make foreign places complicatedly beautiful?

    You will discover that one approach to help energise such work requires an appreciation of the exotic.


    Now you can

    • Develop a better understanding of exotic poetry
    • Work on your poetry, near and far
    • Meet other like-minded poets interested in expanding their knowledge!

    Save your spot

    Workshops are highly limited with space – book early to avoid disappointment.
