About

The Tunbridge Wells Poetry Festival burst forth like water from a chalybeate spring in June 2018. Combining a wide variety of reading events and workshops from local and not-so-local writers, the event proved popular with poets and public alike. We are happy and proud to announce, after a year’s respite, the festival’s return with an even grander bill of fare on the menu.

Originally conceived and ministered by Sarah Miles of Paperswans Press the baton has now been passed to the Kent & Sussex Poetry Society, who intend to build on the success of that which came before to provide an annual event. Which is where you find us, in a brand new decade with a brand new website, very much looking forward to the coming June festival and to the many that will undoubtedly follow. Welcome aboard!
