Do you have a poem that has been a friend to you? Come along to Dragon Hall for a friendly, individual chat about your chosen poem and a cup of tea with The Poetry Exchange podcast team. 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!

‘This whole exchange has provided me with an embarrassment of riches. Grateful. Humbled.’ Paterson Joseph

Sessions last approximately 45 minutes. One person per session. Please book in advance.

British Podcast Award-winning podcast The Poetry Exchange shares unique and powerful stories of connection through poetry with people across the world. Speakers come from all walks of life and they also feature well-known guests such as Andrew Scott (Fleabag), Maxine Peake, Roy McFarlane and Paterson Joseph. Each conversation takes place through the poem, uncovering the speaker’s love of the poem and the vital part it has played in their life.

The Poetry Exchange also work collaboratively with a wide range of partners to create intimate live events. This includes The Poetry Exchange Live – a stunning highlight of Latitude Festival 2019, which will be coming to other festivals around the UK in 2020 and beyond. Website / Twitter
