Brewery Poets host three first-rate, widely published North-west poets –

Andrew Forster has published three collections of poetry:  Fear of Thunder  (shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection in 2008),

20 years in Scotland.   Andrew won a Northern Writers' Award in 2014, and is Literature Officer for the Wordsworth Trust.

Jane Routh has published three full collections of poetry:  Circumnavigation was shortlisted for a Forward Prize for Best First Collection;   Teach Yourself

Mapmaking  was a Poetry Book Society recommendation, and the title poem of The Gift of Boats won the Academi Cardiff International Poetry Competition.

Her most recent publication, Falling into Place, celebrates work, wildlife and weather in north-west England. Jane will be including a few poems from her new pamphlet  The White Silence,  about the north-west passage through the Arctic.

Ron Scowcroft a founder member of Lancaster-based April Poets, will be reading from his new pamphlet 'Moon Garden'.
