Worcestershire

Our libraries

Worcestershire has 24 libraries and a mobile library - full details at http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/cms/library-services.aspx

Worcestershire is an up and coming county on the poetry map.

Our focus is currently to engage with children and young people on a countywide basis. We run a Young Poet Laureate Competition, Word Up, and two poetry slam events, all culminating in live finals. It is difficult to single out one highlight, as I never fail to be impressed by the talent and vision of the young people we work with.

Over the next 12 months, and beyond, we are seeking to extend our poetry offer to a wider audience and are keen to hear from people who are interested in setting up poetry groups.
