Jerwood Centre
7.30 - 9.00pm

This evening we are delighted to host a launch for This Place I Know, a brand new collection of contemporary poetry by some of Cumbria’s finest modern poets writing in response to the variety and wonder of the Cumbrian landscape. Published by Handstand Press, established names such as Chris Pilling, Patricia Pogson, Neil Curry and M. R. Peacocke are joined by a new generation of poets including Polly Atkin, Jacob Polley, Helen Mort and Emma McGordon, bringing fresh forms and insights into the people and places around us. Grevel Lindop will give an introduction and editors Kim Moore and Kerry Darbishire will read some of their favourites before we raise a glass of wine in celebration.
