Spotlight on...Poetry for Wellbeing, with readings by Hampshire Poet, Kathryn Bevis

The Hampshire Poet programme, which aims to foster local writing talent, has been running every two years since 2008 and provides the opportunity for a Hampshire-based poet to undertake commissions, lead workshops and give readings and talks throughout the county.

The Hampshire Poet 2020 is poet and educator Kathryn Bevis, founder of The Writing School in Winchester.

During the lockdown, Kathryn has led a series of live, online poetry courses, Poetry for Wellbeing. Until 10 June, Kathryn will be reading 17 of the poems created by participants in Poetry for Wellbeing on Culture on Call.
