Robert Peake

This is an opportunity to discuss your work one-to-one with Robert Peake, a poet with an international perspective. Robert takes a friendly and sincere approach not only to the poems at hand, but to the development of a poet’s unique themes and approaches, and to strategies for sustaining a rewarding writing practice over time.

Robert runs one-hour sessions in a central location in St. Albans, near to parking, train, and bus links. The venue will be confirmed when you book. 11am, 12.15pm, and 2.15pm. £40 for Poetry Society members, £50 for non-members. Book online or call Paul McGrane on 020 7420 9881. Once your session is booked, you will be asked to send up to six poems, or 150 lines maximum, at least one week in advance, so that Robert has sufficient time to read your poems beforehand.

His collections include Human Shade (Lost Horse Press, USA, 2011), The Silence Teacher (Poetry Salzburg, Austria, 2013) and The Knowledge (Nine Arches Press, UK, 2015). He founded the Transatlantic Poetry on Air reading series, now in its third year, bringing poets together from around the world for live online readings and conversations.
