The Reading Cure–Five Day Residential Course

Written by Chris Routledge, 7th July 2008

Sunday 21st - Friday 26th September 2008, Burton Manor, Cheshire

The Reader Organisation would like to announce its first five day intensive residential
for people who want to become accredited Get Into Reading practitioners.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about the transformative power of books and reading, who are able to demonstrate a wide interest in and knowledge of classic literature, including poetry, or who can demonstrate a powerful willingness to develop such knowledge.

Over the five days all course members will participate in at least ten reading group sessions, as well as meeting some of our reading group members, volunteers and project staff and talking to them about what makes GIR work for them.

In addition, you will be asked to read masses of new stuff and to write logs and prepare sessions each evening. There will be films to watch (for book-of-the-film-group sessions) and play-reading to be done in the evenings. (And there's a village pub not too far away!)
