Programme 2013

Exeter Poetry Festival 2013

ExCite and its partners are delighted to announce the Exeter Poetry Festival 2013 programme.

The festival programme was launched on September 5th 2013 at the Exeter Phoenix when a packed house enjoyed readings by Carol Ann Duffy and Ann Gray.

The festival will take place from Monday 30th September 2013 to Sunday 6th September 2013 at venues around Exeter.

We’ll be featuring the poets performing at the festival over the next few weeks in the build-up to festival week.
