Jonathan Edwards | Welshpool Poetry Festival

Subject to restrictions, Welshpool Poetry Festival are running a small in-person event on Saturday 5th June. Jonathan Edwards is taking part in two events. Find the full details, including steps they are taking to protect attendees, on their website

10.30-12.30 Saturday Surgery with Jonathan Edwards – limited to 10 participants
£12 (inc tea/coffee/biscuits)
After the popularity of this feature in 2019, Jonathan returns to host a poetry sharing and feedback session for just ten participants. Poets submit one poem each in advance for scrutiny and constructive criticism by the group, led by Jonathan with his expertise. Each poet gets a minimum of ten minutes spent on their poem and goes away with all the help they need to edit their poem into the best it can possibly be – priceless!

Book tickets via the website

6.30-8 Poetry Showcase with our Headline Poets Jonathan Edwards & Emma Purshouse – limited to 30 tickets
£8 including free drink (wine or soft drink)
A fantastic way to round off the day, hearing the results of the Open Competition and enjoying two contrasting poets, each outstanding with their own unique delivery and writing style. One thing these poets share is a talent for honing in on what it is to be vulnerable and human, on the everyday miracles and madness of life in their particular special parts of the world. We’re in for a treat!
