Next course for writers

The next iteration of The/Poetry/Fold’s signature creative writing course, Strange Bedfellows, will be held in Newcastle upon Tyne, on Tuesday evenings in Oct/Nov 2013. While you cannot book/pay for a place right now there is a Reserve List for expressions of interest. Please email us at: and write, “SB005: reserve list request” in the subject line of your message. Once on the Reserve List you will get priority access to the booking/payment area of The/Poetry/Fold web site (for an autumn course this is will be in late Aug/early Sept). All we ask is if you go on the list and then realise that, for whatever reason, you can’t actually attend then please let us know immediately and we will take you off the list. All four previous versions of the course sold out and the last two – Strange Bedfellows III & IV – were fully booked within a week of booking going live. The best way to avoid disappointment is by adding your name and email now to the Reserve List. We look forward to hearing from you and please feel free to recommend the course to any friends/colleagues you think may be interested.

What people say

“Stemistry has provided an invaluable source of inspiration, knowledge and creative techniques for my writing over the past five years. This is due in no small part to Lisa Matthews’ professional, original, inclusive and thoughtful approaches to the creative workshops over the course of the project.”
