Event description

Description

"I have been attending festivals as a poet for over 25 years, and this was surely the best I have seen, in terms of spirit, friendliness, audience engagement, and general sense of a poetry friendly environment. Well done for excellent work.” Todd Swift

A five day poetry festival in the beautiful location of the Richard Jefferies Museum and Coate Water Country Park. There will be excursions to other venues and explorations of the local area. Accomodation is available for four nights at either The Sun Inn or The Holiday Inn. We are currently developing the programme and costs but do please register your interest.

Our poets in residence for 2017 will be Tania Hershman & Daljit Nagra. They will be offering readings, workshops and one-ones with our residents (12 places only).

We have five bursary places available which includes help with travel and accomodation. If you can make a donation towards helping poets on low income to come along, we would be very grateful.
