Poet for Hire

Richard Knight is a poet-for-hire who sets himself up outside our shop with his typewriter on certain weekends. Visitors to the bookshop can speak to him about something they want to turn into a poem. Richard will create a bespoke poem for you in the time it takes you to browse the bookshop, at which point you can have the finished piece read to you and then pay whatever you want.

Scheduled appearances in June: 9th, 16th (12-4pm)

All dates subject to change due to weather, so it’s always worth checking the forecast first – if in doubt, give us a call or drop us a message to check he’s here!
