November, already?

2021 is simply flying by. We’ve one more Yes We Cant and one more helping of PASTA for the year, and we’re already up to our eyes in preparations for Wolves Lit Fest (February 4-6, 2022). We’ve a date for the poetry slam at the Arena Theatre – one of our favourite nights of the whole year, if we’re honest – a day devoted to local writers’ groups running at the Lighthouse, and a great selection of Fringe shows lined up in a brand-new venue on the Saturday of the festival.

Ahead of all that, the Wolves Lit Fest poetry competition is open right now! It’s bigger and better than ever, with more money available in prizes than ever before, new prizes for poems from a WV postcode, and Birmingham poet laureate Casey Bailey as our judge. You’ve got until midnight on December 31st to enter, and all the information you’ll need (as well as the all-important Paypal button so you can pay for your entries!) is here. Please read the rules carefully – and good luck!!
