Welcome to the Torbay Festival of Poetry.
The committee of the Torbay Festival of Poetry would like to welcome you to this year’s Festival. A weekend full of poetry in Torbay’s beautiful ambience. With twenty-five events, poetry will fill this weekend: listen to poetry readings; learn more about writing poetry at workshops; listen to poets talking about poetry and, above all, ask questions! Be inspired to write and perhaps become the winner of this year’s Festival Challenge; see more of Torbay on an outing with more poetry. Poetry, waves of poetry washing over Torbay! The Torbay Festival has welcomed many international poets over the years, but also provides a showcase for lesser-known, and unpublished writers. One feature of the Festival is the Poetry Competition which this year again includes a children’s section. The Festival’s aim of a packed schedule of events, mainly in one comfortable venue, has established an inspiring literary weekend by the sea with the added advantage of the beautiful English Riviera as a backdrop. Torbay is famous for sunshine ... it also has a reputation for poetry.
