Since attending creative writing courses in Presteigne with tutor Lara Clough, Agnes Davies has been steadily getting her work published in several poetry magazines. The lifelong learning courses have also served as a springboard to propel her studies further. This year, Agnes begins the Master of Studies in Creative Writing, a part time, distance learning course at Oxford University. She also looks forward to keeping in touch with Lara’s classes.
‘The Lifelong Learning courses have been completely invaluable’, says Agnes. ‘Apart from offering a wide range of writerly skills they have really helped us to hone our individual voices and develop in confidence, both as creators and critics. The group continues to nourish and deepen our pleasure in poetry, which we can't help but share with the community through outdoor exhibitions, involvement with festivals, childrens' workshops, annual anthologies... Long may such learning continue!’
