The South West Poetry Tour Is Coming To Schumacher College

Wednesday, 20 July, 2016


The South West Poetry Tour, curated by Camilla Nelson (Singing Apple Press) and SJ Fowler (The Enemies Project), runs through Cornwall, Devon and Somerset from 1st-7th August 2016. Over the course of 5 evenings 70 established and emerging poets from across the southwest perform 50 new language works in 50 collaborative pairs. Beyond producing some wonderful, energised and innovative nights of collaborative poetry, the aim of the tour is to forge creative links between poets, artists, arts organisations and audiences locally and regionally. The 6 core touring poets are JR Carpenter, John Hall, Matti Spence, Annabel Banks, Camilla Nelson and SJ Fowler. For full details of each night’s lineup visit:
