Celebrate National Poetry Day at the Wordsworth Trust with host Kim Moore and guest poet Ruby Robinson.

Come and join our Poetry Party and celebrate National Poetry Day at the Wordsworth Trust, with special host Kim Moore.

The theme for this year is 'Truth' and our guest poet will be the fabulous Ruby Robinson. Ruby's debut collection Every Little Sound was published in 2016 by Pavilion Poetry. Colette Bryce wrote that 'The most vital poetry is fuelled by truth, even when it may expose us to the source of pain. Ruby Robinson's poems enact this risk with great skill, reaffirming the power of the art'.

There will also be an open mic session during the evening – sign up on the door to read your own poems or a favourite poem by someone else that explores the theme of truth.
