Hear three poets with forthcoming collections read and hold conversations about their work with
[Ledbury Critic]. Dr Jo Clement has published and broadcast her works with The Travellers’ Times

British Gypsy ethnicity and lyrically lays them to rest. Raine Geoghegan is a UK-born poet, writer and
playwright of Romany descent with two pamphlets, Apple Water: Povel Panni and they lit fires: lenti
hatch o yog and full a collection forthcoming The Talking Stick: O Pookering Kosh. Sarah Wimbush’s
