Dove Cottage Poets is an informal poetry writing group that meets at the Wordsworth Trust on a monthly basis.  Anyone who wishes to develop their poetry, or just enjoy shared reading and writing, whatever stage you are at, is very welcome to come and join us.

This month we are joined by our March poet in residence, Matt Howard, for a very special reading, Q&A, and workshop. Tea and coffee will be available.

Matt Howard lives in Norwich, where he works for the RSPB. Matt is also a steering group member of New Networks for Nature, an eco-organisation that asserts the central importance of landscape and nature in our cultural life. His debut pamphlet, The Organ Box, was published by Eyewear in 2014 and his first full collection, Gall,was published by The Rialto in 2018. Prior to this residency with the Wordsworth Trust, Matt was the first poet in residence at the Cambridge Conservation Initiative. He has previously worked in schools as a poet as part of Waveney and Blythe Arts’ Famous Five Birds project.
