In 2016 Pauline Yarwood and Kim Moore held the inaugural Kendal Poetry Festival. It was a huge success, which will be repeated this year. The Festival will be held from 16th – 18th June 2017.
The poets appearing at this years festival will be; Malika Booker, Ian Duhig, Inua Ellams, Linda Gregerson, Martin Kratz, William Letford, Tim Liardet, Hannah Lowe, Jack Mapanje, Katheryn Maris, Katrina Naomi and Chrissy Williams. The young poet in residence is Florence Jones, and the young musician in residence is Sam Nicholls.
It is an amazing weekend of poetry and music, if you are in the area how about coming to check it out.
As in 2016 Lil’ Creative Studio designed the marketing literature & website for the festival. The banners around Kendal were supported by Kim Moore and her group of young poets who handed out free poems throughout Kendal in May.
Good luck Po & Kim – it’s going to be another fabulous weekend!
