Worple Poets at Cheltenham Poetry Festival


cheltenhamWorple is proud to present a showcase of recent poets and collections at the 2017 Cheltenham Poetry Festival.

Join us on Sunday 7th May at the Cheltenham Playhouse, 3.30-4.30pm to hear readings from three Worple poets:

Linda Saunders’ new collection A Touch on the Remote shows “the world cherished by our watchfulness, life lived in rapt attention” (Carrie Etter).

John Freeman’s tenth collection of poems, What Possessed Me, evokes childhood memories and lifelong relationships with humour, poignancy, and preternatural clarity (“Full of precise and telling detail and powerful and memorable imagery” – Jonathan Edwards).

William Wootten has been described as “an original talent in full flower.” The acclaimed You Have a Visitor is a book of songs and stories. Its 52 poems are arranged to reflect the English seasons.
