2018 Kendal Poetry Festival highlights

The 2018 Kendal Poetry Festival is over and here at festival headquarters, we’re still feeling nourished by the poetry and sense of community that we felt over the weekend.  In case any of you are having poetry withdrawal symptoms, we’ll be posting a few blogs and photos over the next week or so to remind ourselves of what a fantastic time we had.
To get things started, here is a brilliant Kendal Poetry Festival highlights film, made by one of our Dove Cottage Young Poets, Em Humble.  You can find out more information about Em on her Facebook page here www.facebook.com/emhumble.film/
