Poetry exhibition by the Word Birds

The WORD BIRDS Poetry Showcase, a national women poets' network originating in Settle, are currently staging an exhibition of members' work at the Gallery on the Green. Described as 'a flock of women poets who perform UK wide, taking a bird's eye view of human relationships, the Word Birds aim to showcase women's poetry both through UK-wide readings and (from 1st July) online, giving opportunities that are otherwise hard to come by for newer poets to read alongside established ones.

The Settle exhibition will also provide a 'guest slot' for anyone who wishes to place their postcard-sized poem into the exhibition. More information can be obtained by emailing
