About the event

Ink Spill is a Huddersfield-based poetry organisation which was founded in 2022 with the purpose of bringing together local creatives with a shared love of literature. They hold monthly poetry evenings which explore different themes and topics through creative workshop activities, culminating in a poetry-specific open mic. In 2023, they hosted their first poetry festival with great success, a feat they hope to repeat later on this year. 

 Their hosts (Abbi Senior and Hannah Robinson-Wright) are delighted to be holding a session during Huddersfield Literature Festival, which explores the theme of ‘water’. The evening will begin with a series of writing activities consisting of visual inspiration, craft and freewriting. The second half with be a poetry-specific open mic where everyone, regardless of experience of ability, are welcome to perform. Whether you’re a published poet, want to share new material or wish to sit back and take in the local talent, there is a space for you at Ink Spill!
