Dove Cottage Poets, plus Brantwood poetry events 2019

Kerry and Geraldine, Wordsworth Trust Grasmere, November 21st 2018

Dove Cottage poets Kerry Darbishire and Geraldine Green ended a successful year of poetry with a reading in the Foyle Room at the Wordsworth Trust Grasmere on November 21st to a packed room and an appreciative audience. Big thanks go to Hannah Catterall and colleagues at the Wordsworth Trust for supporting the reading and helping to make it such a relaxed and enjoyable event and to Polly Atkins for hosting it so beautifully – thank you all!

DCP is a friendly welcoming group of poets who meet on the first Thursday of the month at Dove Cottage. If you'd like to join DCP or be added to the group email list, please contact:

Sharing the same publisher, Indigo Dreams, Geraldine and Kerry had a busy 2018 with their Northern IDP tour. This tour continues well into 2019 with readings already booked at Brantwood, Coniston, Spotlight Lancaster, Brewery Arts Kendal and Borderlines Festival Carlisle – plus many more, including Geraldine’s poetry tour to the US in July.

She’s delighted to once again be co-tutoring at Brantwood in 2019 with New York poet George Wallace in June, UK poet Pippa Little in October, plus two poetry readings with open mic slots in March and November.

Guest poets include: Kathleen Jones, Kerry Darbishire, Pippa Little in March with Geraldine reading alongside Graham Mort, Helen Mort, Kerry Darbishire in November.

While open mic slots are open to all, it would be great to have DCP poets reading with Geraldine and Kerry, as well as other IDP poets and Brantwood writers.

Booking is through Brantwood
