THE SUFFOLK YOUNG POETS PARADE
Thursday 19th March 2020 - 7:00 pm
with Karl Knights & Jeni Smith
You’ve seen the Suffolk Young Poets posters on the walls at The Cut? Now’s your chance to hear the 2019/20 winning poems out loud as the ten gifted winners of the Suffolk Young Poets Competition take to the stage.
They’ll be joined by two scintillating Suffolk-based poets; Karl Knights, born in Leiston, is one of the UK’s most exciting new poets and has written for The Guardian; Jeni Smith, joint director of the National Writing project, has a lifetime’s experience of bringing poetry into classrooms. Both Karl and Jeni will be reading from their first captivating collections of poems for children.
A dazzling display of Suffolk’s poetic talent!
