Of poetry festivals and Exeter Events

This is my writing groups blog, so I thought I’d share via Lucid Gypsy

WordWorks Exeter

The first of October heralds a feast of words here in Exeter. It’s Exeter poetry Festival until the 7th, with events at the City Gate, Phoenix and the library, something for everyone.

This year Kimwei McCarthy, the current Bard of Exeter with be there, as well as the wonderful Matt Harvey, one time official Wimbledon Poet, Joanna Trollope and many more.

Later in the month, Literature Works is offering a free half day training session for Devon based (or nearby) poets who may be interested in working in Memory Cafes.

The workshop is at Exeter Central Library on Wed 19 Sept from 1.30 to 4.30pm. Full details at https://nationalmemoryday.org.uk/national-memory-day-poet-training-session-in-devon/

October 4th  is National Poetry day, this year the theme is Change, very timely for the UK.

Finally, a little teaser, we’re in the early stages of planning another Wordworks event.  November 9th, save the date.

September Pink Square day 8

I spent a lovely afternoon at Poltimore house, a few miles outside Exeter. More about the very damaged and decaying house later, for today there was a event about all things yarn related, Ruth you would have loved it. I spotted a pink opportunity with this little fairy.

Isn’t she sweet? And in the pink, just like Becky is here!
