Poems of Hope: a celebration for National Poetry Day with Helen Mort

Poetry Reading and Q&A
Join Helen Mort for a relaxed evening of poetry, conversation and celebration plus the launch of the new poetry project 'A Ticket to Hope'
Join us at this LoveLit event with prize-winning poet and author Helen Mort for a relaxed evening of poetry, conversation and celebration. A former Derbyshire Poet Laureate, Helen's work evokes the landscape of the Peak District and the people who make it special, from the suburbs of Chesterfield to the expanse of the Hope Valley.

In this Zoom event, she will read from her collections Division Street (shortlisted for the Costa Prize) and No Map Could Show Them and launch an exciting new public poetry project which anyone with a Derbyshire connection can take part in. There will also be a Q&A as part of the event.

The link to attend this Zoom evening will be emailed out to guests a few days prior to the event. Booking is essential.
