“My intern experience last summer was a brilliant one. I looked forward to the morning meetings every day to discuss the itinerary of each day. All of the interns had our set work, including meeting the poets before their performance and delivering their introductions. We also had to improvise, which often resulted in helping with the crafts section of the Festival (the strangest and most creative part). Being able to watch any performance we wanted to was a pleasure, and getting to meet the performers afterwards for a drink was even better. Best of all, we had fun. Everyone in the office and others stationed around Ledbury made me feel like part of the LPF family and I wish I could come back and do it all again. Phillippa, Sandra, Chloe and John are all stars of this Festival and I hope you get the chance to meet them or experience the Festival in some way.” EW 2018 intern
“Working at Ledbury Poetry Festival gave me an invaluable insight into the world of event managing, online marketing and the logistics of a long-standing poetry festival. But even more importantly I got to attend unforgettable events and met wonderful people: festival staff and fellow volunteers, up-and-coming as well as established poets from all over the world, publishers and editors, and a delightfully diverse audience.” KE
