North Cumbria Stanza: Song of Myself

Wed 5 June | 6pm

Poetry has always been a vibrant medium for self-exploration. Poet and editor Kelly Davis will host a reading by the Poetry Society’s North Cumbria Stanza Group, including Kathleen Jones, Ilse Pedler, Kerry Darbishire, Elizabeth Stott, Shelagh Brown, Susan Cartwright-Smith, Jean Hill and Luke Bateman, with guest readers Ros Edwards and Phil Hewitson. Come and hear contemporary Cumbrian poets interrogate age-old questions of identity and belonging.
