OUP Weekend—November

Looking forward to this year’s OU Poetry Weekend at Kewstoke with tutor Maggie Sawkins. The dates are 24-26 November and bookings have now closed. Watch this space for an update after the event!


A sad announcement today for all who knew the lovely smile of Helen Harvey, who died yesterday. A talented poet, past Chair of OUP, she was also events officer as many will recall. Our thoughts go to Andrew, her beloved partner, and her family. God rest.
