This is live poetry.

Not for the faint of heart. This is Wordsmiths & Co.





Nine Arches Press and Apples & Snakes with Warwick Arts Centre present:

  • Wordsmiths & Co


Two winter Wordsmiths shows at Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry, CV4 7AL

 Join us for the UK’s first live poetry talk show, featuring a crossover of poets you know from the pages of books and from the festival stages. Jo Bell, your host for this celebration of all things spoken, brings together four poets and encourages them to share secrets, tell tales and share the magic of words and wonderment with the audience in this intimate performance space.


 This is a rare opportunity to witness some of the finest established and up-and-coming wordsmiths sharing their stories, poems and opinions as they engage in a no-holds-barred conversation and performance right before your widened eyes!


 This series of events is collaboration between Nine Arches Press and Apples and Snakes, with support from Warwick Arts Centre.
