Worcestershire Poet Laureate 2020-2021

Traditionally the Poet Laureate competition opens the launch of the Worcestershire LitFest & Fringe and then 5 days later the New Poet Laureate is presented with the actual engraved award at the SpeakEasy Festival Special.

WLF are pleased to announce, earlier this month we managed a socially distanced hand over of the Worcestershire Poet Laureate trophy to Leena Batchelor.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Charley Barnes for her wonderful year as Worcestershire Poet Laureate. Charley worked extremely hard raising the profile of Poetry across the county.

Look out for more Poetry News from Leena Batchelor as we approach National Poetry Day.
