Online Zoom Webinar

Jonathan Edwards | Wordsworth Grasmere (online)

This event is part of Wordsworth Grasmere’s 2021 contemporary poetry series “Go to the poets, they will speak to thee”, curated and hosted by poet Kim Moore. Each event in the series is part reading, part open mic – and the theme of the open mic changes every month!

Jonathan Keller writes that “William Wordsworth would primarily write about the extraordinary in the ordinary, about the ‘powerful feeling’ which accompanies what seems, on initial glance, to be perfectly commonplace”. This month’s guest poet Jonathan Edwards also makes it his business to make the ordinary come alive in full colour. Jonathan’s work is funny, poignant and vivid, full of imagination and the perfect place to conclude our 2021 “Go to the poets” reading series. Our open mic theme this month is “The Ordinary into Extraordinary”. (Please note: The open mic is now full).

Tickets £5. Visit to book. (Five free tickets are available for each session for those experiencing financial hardship that would otherwise not be able to attend. This is on a first come first served basis with no questions asked about your situation. Please email Hannah at
