Brenda Read-Brown

Gloucestershire Poet Laureate, 2012-2013


Poet; writer; project manager; performer; reader development worker; creative writing tutor; technical author and more. I seem to do something different every day, but it’s all to do with writing, reading or the spoken word.

    Hello, I have worked with Brenda about a diary and I was wondering if any development will be made or if the project isn’t funded anymore?

      Hi – the diary is ready, but with the closure of Shrewsbury I had only a couple of copies made And you’re right – there is no more funding. Sorry!

        Would I be able to find a copy of the book? Or will you publish it online in an ebook?

    Hi – if you write to me c/o WIPN, PO Box 71, Welshpool, SY21 0WB, I can arrange for you to have a copy.

      Hi Laurien –
      Yes, I remember you – a very good poet who was extremely self-critical! I was still writer in residence at HMP Shrewsbury until it closed in March this year; I really miss the work there. Thank you for your kind comments. It’s good to know that I could be of some help. I hope all is well with you.
      Best regards,
