The Verse Poetry Pop-Up - VERSE 2020

Feeling blue or got an ailment? Our Dr Poet can fix it with a poetical prescription!

Location: Stamford Contemporary Arts, Maiden Lane, PE9 2AZ

10am - 4pm

Everyone is welcome to drop into Verse's very own pop-up shop at Stamford Contemporary Arts Gallery, open to all, whether you like poetry or not and especially if you want to know more about the Festival and the thriving poetry scene in Stamford.

You will get the chance to contribute to a festival wide poem via the pop-up typewriter and take part in cut up poetry and broadside making workshops. Get the chance to tell your stories about Stamford that will feature in a poem! Why not pop in and have a cup of tea with us!

Poetry Pharmacy - an alternative therapy for your emotional ailments. Whether you are suffering from the stresses of the modern world or the pain of a broken heart or simply need a tonic for the spirits, rest assured that our resident Dr Poet will have a poetry remedy for you!

Our pop-up shop is led by Keely Mills, who was Peterborough Poet Laureate 2009 and has performed at both the Edinburgh Festival and the Houses of Parliament. She has performed and worked with Kate Tempest, Scroobius Pip, Ross Sutherland, Toby Champion, Attila the Stockbroker and John Cooper Clarke. Taking place at Stamford Contemporary Arts, Stamford's new art gallery on Maiden Lane, this is a wonderful place for artists to exhibit and work on their pieces and a great location for poetry too!
