Inspire Poetry Festival returns in 2021 and we’re taking a thoroughly 21st century approach by offering both live and online readings, workshops, exhibitions and special events. Highlights include readings by Don Paterson and Roger Robinson; poetry workshops with Sue DymokeLeanne Moden and Jonathan Davidson; a live Showcase by Paper Crane Poets at Beeston Library; the launch of the poetry book "Coal in the Blood"; our fascinating Poetry Place workshops and touring exhibition; as well as our annual Poetry Takeover at all participating libraries.

Don't forget to check the full range of online poetry readings and interviews available on our Features page, including a month’s worth of daily poems by Henry Normal and his New Poetry Society series of brilliant online chats and readings with Nottinghamshire’s finest poets- all online and available to watch at your leisure.

We look forward to once again sharing the best of poetry with audiences around the county and beyond.
