A feast of contemporary poetry in Falmouth

The third Cornwall Contemporary Poetry Festival will be held in Falmouth, from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25 November 2018.  The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Shorelines’

It will feature readings, discussions and workshops with some of the most exciting poets writing today, from the UK and further afield, including Inua Ellams, Anne-Marie Fyfe, Alyson Hallett, Isaiah Hull, Gerður Kristný, Sean O’Brien, Cahal Dallat and Penelope Shuttle – watch this space for more details, and book the dates in your diaries!

As part of this year’s festival, we will be presenting the third Cornwall Contemporary Poetry Prize and inviting its winners to read. There are details of how to enter here.

Poet and critic John Greening wrote of our last festival: “If organisers of festivals are looking for a benchmark, then look no further than CCPF, whose organisation and presentation are second to none.” Some highlights are captured in the video below.

The Cornwall Contemporary Poetry Festival is an initiative of Falmouth Poetry Group with the support of Arts Council England and Falmouth University.
