We’re kick-starting Exeter Poetry Festival 2013 with the launch of a special, festival-themed edition of Devon’s newest poetry magazine The Broadsheet. This limited edition will feature poems from festival readers, from Sean O’Brien to Hannah Silva, alongside poems from writers across Devon and Cornwall and from across the poetry spectrum.

Join us for a night of open mic readings from the best and brightest poets in the region, and celebrate the launch of a magazine without borders.
