Stowe Poetry Commission – Call for entries

Stowe is looking for a poet with experience of socially engaged practice to hold a residency in the summer of 2019. The successful poet will lead creative writing workshops and develop new work in response to the pastoral idyll as exemplified in Stowe’s Grecian Valley.

Stowe is a 250 acre landscape garden outside the town of Buckingham. This project will give the poet the opportunity to become immersed in the landscape of the Grecian Valley, and be inspired to produce a contemporary response to the 18th Century rural idyll. The resulting work will be available for visitors to experience as part of a new tour of the Grecian Valley in the autumn of 2019, and as a public performance on National Poetry Day, Thursday 3rd October.
