It’s not long now before the launch of the Third Kendal Poetry Festival website, so keep a lookout so you can start booking early.   The dates this year are 6 – 9 September and the venue for most of the events is the Castle Green Hotel, on the outskirts of Kendal.   We hope this going to be a really successful venue where we can have several events running at the same time and where you will be able to use the bistro, restaurant and bars all through the weekend.   There are even gardens and woodlands for you to stroll through if the urge to take it quietly and write comes over you.

Don’t forget we have a Brewery Reading before that, on Friday 25 May with the amazing Kim Moore, John Foggin, Jean Harrison and the duo Further to Fly – details on on the Events page.

It seems as though Brewery Poets have been sleeping! On the contrary, we have had a really busy year, with our numbers expanding constantly and we have a vibrant and talented group of writers. We are now pretty much at capacity for our regular monthly workshop.

We continue to hold two readings a year, and the next one is on Friday, 26 May in the Warehouse Cafe at the Brewery Arts Centre with Karen Lloyd, Maggie How and Martin Reed, with music by the fabulous duo Demix. This will be a special evening. Details of this event are on the Brewery Website – go to Literature and click on Brewery Poets.

Welcome to the first Brewery Poets post.  We’re not planning on blogging in any regular way, but, as the News & Reviews heading suggests, we will periodically post miscellaneous thoughts, ideas, events, reviews and anything else we think may be of interest to you.

If there is anything you’d like us to highlight, mention or comment upon, just get in touch with me, Pauline Yarwood, or Kim Moore.

The members of Brewery Poets who have their own websites are highlighted under Poets on the menu, and they also appear in Links.

I hope you enjoy the site.
