Poetry Landmarks



(Poetry Festival)


nominated by: Helen Flanagan

There's a marine flavour to Poetry-next-the-Sea (27 to 30 April 2006), the festival held within spitting distance of the quay at Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk. Among those offering readings, workshops and discussions are John Burnside, Penelope Shuttle, David Constantine, Esther Morgan, P.J. Kavanagh, Ann Drysdale and Caroline Gilfillan. The festival's other theme is the human voice, represented in a talk on the history of sea shanties, a voice workshop, an introduction to the Poetry Archive, and an open-mic fringe session overlooking the harbour. Added to the mix are school poets, a significant craft exhibition, and a Poetry Vending Machine. Unmissable events in unbeatable surroundings.
