Join these Writing Ambitions celebration events online

Love poetry? Whether you enjoy reading, writing, or listening to poetry, or you want to find out more about exciting new forms such as poetry film, we have an event for you!

We’re are offering four events as part of our end-of-project celebrations for the Writing Ambitions project. The project offered paid commissions for writers wanting to work with a Derbyshire arts festival and on 8th February the writers will be showcasing their work.

There is also a Poetry Film workshop and the opportunity to book a 1-2-1 session with poets Helen Mort and Sophie Sparham on dates in February.

All events are virtual and can be booked on Eventbrite.


The project is funded and supported by Derbyshire County Council, Arts Derbyshire including members of Festivity, Writing East Midlands, Junction Arts, and supported by Arts Council England with funding from the National Lottery.
