On Monday this week distinguished poet Ruth Padel gave a reading in the Nottingham Poetry Festival 2020 from her new collection Beethoven Variations. She also talked about her writing processes and shared aspects of Letter to a Young Poet with us, her audience. The Letter is a personal alphabet which offers guidance on many elements of the writing craft. It includes useful links for young (and not so young) writers to follow up, argue about or use to inspire your own writing. Enjoy! You might also want to check out other online events in the Festival (including free performances and writing workshops). It runs until November 22nd. Access the full programme here.
