The Reader offers a wide range of courses and literary experiences enabling everyone to learn through and from the shared reading of great literature. Whatever your background with books and reading, you’ll find a course that meets your needs - be they personal or professional – allowing you to look at literature from a whole new angle.
From our all-purpose Short Courses for Serious Readers, to our flagship professional programme Read to Lead, all courses are rooted in the principle that literature has a powerful and practical application in our lives: we teach the practice of reading for our sake, not for art’s sake alone.
"A pause on life to re-focus my principles and expectations. A place to feel more confident in my talents, and possibilities. A reconnection."
For more information on our range of courses, please contact Jenny Kelly, Course Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
See below for listings of our open courses and Masterclasses (ongoing learning provision exclusively for trained shared reading practitioners).
Applications on all courses must be accompanied with an application form, which can be downloaded below.
