For poets everywhere, a listing of poetry retreats, holidays, vacations, workshops and residential courses for poetry writing and the appreciation of verse.

Poetry holiday inspiration
Combine poetry and walking, in combination with the Ilkley Literature Festival (worth a visit in it's own right), how about a visit to the The Stanza Stones Trail? Poems by West Yorkshire poet Simon Armitage have been engraved on stones in atmospheric locations on a 47-mile walking trail on the Pennines, from Marsden to Ilkley. They can be walked as short day walks to individual stones, as three full day walks, or as a full 47 mile trail. Free Trail Guides are available.
