Welcome to the second edition of The Poetry Retreat. This is a unique residency that has been designed only for poets in India.

Located in the lush Saraya Eco Stay in a quiet corner of North Goa, poets are bound to be inspired by the surroundings. Poets will be housed in beautiful bamboo tree houses and be one with nature.

This is an immersive residency program designed to give poets all the tools they need to understand the elements of a poem, how to write for the page and performance, how to edit poetry and finally how to become a poem when you perform.

​The residency is open to 8 poets from around India in varying stages of their poetry journey. You could have just started writing/performing poetry or you could be working on a collection of poems that you hope to publish. There will be 3 mentors guiding you through the different techniques of writing and performing poetry. You will have access to one-on-one mentoring as well as group lectures and discussions.

The residency covers food and accommodation for 4 nights and 5 days. We have worked very hard at making sure that this residency is affordable and highly engaging.

Stay tuned for information on our mentors and for the application form.

Timing for day one is 2pm-9.30pm  and the rest of the days 7am-9.30pm
