This Place I Know: A New Anthology of Cumbrian Poetry

This wonderful new anthology of Cumbrian poetry brings together a contrasting collection of voices in recognition of the great and continuing tradition of Lake District poetry.

The poems are inspired by the unique effect that Cumbrian people and places have on the imagination. Contributors include some of the region’s best known poets, including Helen Mort and Jacob Polley as well as a number of young, lesser known and previously unpublished writers. We will joined by acclaimed poets Polly Atkin and Kim Moore and a host of other contributors. 

This is an exciting vibrant anthology which captures and awakens the spirit of Cumbria in a way that only poetry can do.

'This evocative, colourful collection should inspire anyone who doesn’t yet know the county to explore Cumbria’s unique culture and landscapes.’ - Fiona Sampson.

'The Place I know' edited by Liz Nuttall, Kim Moore and Kerry Darbishire, published by Handstand Press will be available to buy at our bookshop over the weekend.

* At the end of the book launch we will introduce Beatrice Stanley from Cockermouth, who was scouted from the Kendal Poetry Festival's Open mic night in September. It was a brilliant evening with 31 poets! Beatrice will read a couple of her poems at the end of the session. We can't wait! *
