Summer School 2012

The 8th Tower Poetry Summer School for young poets aged 18-23 was held in Christ Church, Oxford from 28-31 August 2012. The tutors were Alan Gillis (University of Edinburgh, Scotland) and Kevin Young (Emory University, Atlanta, USA).

In addition to the workshops, Dr Mishtooni Bose (Christopher Tower Student and Tutor in Medieval Poetry in English, Christ Church) gave an evening talk on ‘Found in translation: modern poets and Old English craft’. Dr Peter McDonald (Christopher Tower Student and Tutor in Poetry in the English Language) joined the group for the final reading on Friday morning. The results of the Summer School are published in the anthology, Earth-Quiet available from Tower Poetry.
