Do you have a poem that has been a friend to you? We’re delighted to welcome our friends at The Poetry Exchange back to Dragon Hall for a series of friendly, one-on-one conversations that celebrate the power of poetry.

Book an individual slot (45 mins) and talk to a member of The Poetry Exchange podcast team about a poem that has meant something special to you. Together, you’ll explore your chosen poem and the ways it has been a friend to you in your life.

In exchange, you’ll receive a gift: a special recording of your chosen poem, inspired by the conversation. You might even end up on their show!
