What's On

The 2021 Festival will take us on a journey of poetry with an innovative 'summer series' of monthly online events (May-September), featuring a leading poet, a workshop, in-conversation sessions, and a reading group based on their work, gathering momentum as it moves to its culmination with, we hope, a live, face-to-face, Festival Weekend in October (8-10) featuring leading contemporary poets, a number of showcase readings, conversations, workshops, and community activities.

Poetry Salon

Poetry Reading Group 

with Kathryn Bevis
Friday 11 June
7.00 - 8.30pm

 

Join us for an exciting, new, online poetry gathering on the second Friday of each month where we’ll read and discuss some of the most brilliant voices in contemporary poetry, including poems written by Winchester Poetry Festival’s featured poets for 2021.

Each month will be themed and we’ll get to know a handful of brilliant poems related to that theme, making time to see how they might reflect, amplify, complicate, contradict, or bewilder each other when read together. These will be animated, inspiring evenings for us all to learn more from each other about the peculiar pleasures of reading poems. Readings will be shared in advance and all are welcome (either for one session or the whole series): poetry newbies, poetry fanatics, and poetry experts alike.
