Help support Ledbury Poetry Festival

On Wednesday 20 March, Ledbury Poetry Festival will launch a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign aiming to raise the funds to welcome three poets to the UK: Enrique Winter from Chile, Laura Wittner from Argentina and Shivanee Ramlochan from Trinidad. The first 48 hours are vital to the success of the campaign, so we encourage readers and lovers of poetry to support the Festival to bring these exciting Latin American and Caribbean poets to the UK.

This is a new way for the Festival to raise funds to support specific projects and hopefully, if it is successful, future Kickstarter campaigns might also be possible.

The presence of poets from around the world adds an enormous amount to the unique atmosphere and energy of the Festival. It would be amazing if Ledbury Poetry Festival could welcome more poets from places, such as Latin American and Africa, and enable audiences to discover more about the poets and poetry of the many countries. But it is extremely hard to find funding and so their voices are not heard.

With fingers crossed for a successful campaign!
