Skirlaugh HU11 5HN
Wordquake and East Riding Libraries present the fourth annual Bridlington Poetry Festival.
Join us for three days of poetry readings, workshops, film screenings and other events beside the sea. We'd love to welcome you, with poets and performers from every corner of the UK and beyond, into the vibrant community of what Carol Rumens called, in The Guardian, the “highly recommended Bridlington Poetry Festival”.
See you in June!
New for 2013, we are delighted to announce our intensive creative writing programme, for a maximum of 12 participants, led by renowned poet-tutors Daljit Nagra and Pascale Petit.
With accommodation in a sea-front hotel, participants will enjoy three morning classes together at Sewerby Hall. During the afternoons, participants will have free time to write in this most inspirational setting, or attend Festival events, around one-to-one sessions on Friday and Saturday with the tutors. The Summer School begins on Thursday 13 June with an exclusive performance by Daljit and Pascale at the Expanse Hotel.
including B&B accommodation in the superbly-located Expanse Hotel, with its inspiring sea views, and a free Weekend Pass to Bridlington Poetry Festival
