About the event

Andrew Greig at the Ledbury Poetry Festival. Poems of the Sea: Andrew Greig and Ian Stephen. Novelist and poet Andrew Greig has a feel for his native Scottish landscape that makes the words breathe and you can practically smell the heather. In his latest collection he moves from land to water – in Found At Sea ‘poem after poem like wave following wave’, creates ‘interference and
reinforcement patterns.’ Writer, artist and sailor, Ian Stephen’s passion for and knowledge of the sea after 15 years as a coastguard informs his latest poems, ‘a lyric poet of real worth’ (Robert MacFarlane). Tickets £8. Visit www.poetry-festival.co.uk or call 0845 458 1743.
