The second Cornwall Contemporary Poetry Festival will be taking place in Falmouth on the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November 2016.
As well as readings and workshops with some of the UK’s most celebrated and compelling poets, there’ll be a poetry slam, discussions, open-mic events and the fabulous Poetry Postie – all in the beautiful surroundings of one of the UK’s liveliest coastal towns.
Poetry will even be taking to the water: the final event of the festival is a cruise up the River Fal, with a chance to read your words on the waves.
Poets at the festival will include:
Alison Brackenbury, Steve Ely, John Greening, Meirion Jordan, Molly Naylor, Pascale Petit, Penelope Shuttle and Jane Yeh.
You can watch a video about our inaugural festival, in Calstock, below.
Do make a date in your diary for the next one, which promises to be even better!
