Petersfield Museum presents
In association with The Edward Thomas Fellowship
The Edward Thomas Literary Festival 2020 (Digital)
This three-day digital event (1st-3rd October) looks at the life and work of Edward Thomas. It will expand and explore not only his own literary work but how he has inspired others. His love of nature and his sense of place and belonging will also be studied.
Over 20 renowned poets, writers, and academics are taking part. They will include: Daljit Nagra, Kathryn Bevis, Matthew Hollis, the Friends of the Dymock Poets and the Robert Frost Society. New poets such as Jade Cuttle who has recently appeared on BBC’s ‘The Verb’ with Simon Armitage will also be appearing. Jade will be using new techniques she has devised to tune into ‘the chatter of plants’ in her fascinating session.
The event also features ‘2 Poets, 1 Conversation: Andrew Motion and Michael Longley’ as the Fellowship’s fortieth anniversary contribution to the Festival.
This will be a series of events not to be missed and the full programme can be seen by following this link.
After many of the sessions there will be an opportunity to join in a live Q&A with the participants.
You will be able to access the festival through Facebook, YouTube, Zoom, Twitter and much more with events and sessions planned for all platforms!
Tickets: Admission to events will be by donation.
