Poetry Day: Places of Poetry Northwest

Saturday 20th March 7:30pm

Poetry lives in the veins of Britain, its farms and moors, its motorways and waterways, highlands and beaches, so for the final event in our poetry day we are proud to celebrate the poetry of place.
This event will be the finale of our Places of Poetry Northwest Project. It will feature work from the 2020 anthology Places of Poetry alongside six poems selected by Andrew and Paul from the public submissions to Litfest’s poetry map of the North West.

The map will be live on our website from the release of the programme and you can submit poems here until 15th March 2021!

Andrew McRae is Professor of Renaissance Studies in the Department of English and Dean of Postgraduate Research and the Exeter Doctoral College. His publications include God Speed the Plough, Literature, Satire and the Early Stuart State, and Literature and Domestic Travel in Early Modern England (2009).

Paul Farley has published five collections of poetry, including The Boy from the Chemist Is Here to See You (1998), Tramp in Flames (2006) and Selected Poems (2009). His latest collection is the acclaimed The Mizzy (2020). A frequent presenter on BBC Radio 4’s The Echo Chamber, he has received numerous awards including Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year, the Whitbread Poetry Prize and the E.M. Forster Award.
