Call out to promoters and programmers for events

We are beginning to put together the full programme for Bristol Poetry Festival 2016.
We already have the following poets booked: Gillian Clarke with Penelope Shuttle, John Greening and Alison Brackenbury; Matthew Caley with David Briggs, Rachael Boast and Rosie Jackson; Helen Mort with Deborah Harvey and friends; The Magnetic Diaries with Vey Streker; The Bristol Poetry Festival Slam; a Can Openers Festival Special and festival aperatifs include Keys, Chords and Uncommonplaces with Ash Dickinson, David C Johnson and Beth Porter.
We would also like to include as many local and grass-roots events as possible in the festival programme. If you are a promoter of a Bristol poetry event or wish to include an event in the festival programme, please click on the anti-clash dairy link below to find out which dates and times are available and how to get in touch with Poetry Can about your event.
Poetry Can Membership Scheme
Poetry Can is an organisation working to promote poetry in the South West of England. We are dedicated to supporting the creative and professional development of poets of all ages and levels of experience and to increasing and promoting opportunities for everyone to take part in and enjoy poetry.
Membership costs £3 per month (you might think of it as buying poetry a cup of coffee once a month!)
By becoming a member of Poetry Can you will be saying in a very practical way that you believe in the importance and possibilities of poetry.
The Poetry Can website
This site is a portal to the world of poetry in the South West of England.
You can sign up for our monthly newsletter at: www.poetrycan.co.uk/newsletter.
Poetry Can organises both Bristol Spring Poetry Festival and Bristol Poetry Festival every year. These festivals feature local national and international poets. We've put together a page featuring all of the poets who have appeared at Bristol Poetry Festivals over the past few years, we call it The Wall of Poetry Fame.
