The Great West Midlands Poetry Relay

Here is the Monty Funk Productions podcast of the Great West Midlands Poetry Relay – the route, the poets and how the day panned out.

A day in July that took us over 360 miles in a 17 seater mini bus, a 5am start with ten poets to collect from ten locations around the West Midlands. One of our favourite projects so far as it combined lots of logistical planning to get the route right and high energy performances on the day. Absolutely knackering but worth it.

Over on the Birmingham Book Festival blog there is some further information, The results of the poetry relay are in!
