Malcolm Carson, Poetry Breakfast

Malcolm Carson, Poetry Breakfast


Poetry and Pastries

Time to listen to poets and writers reading their own work, or perhaps time to read your favourite prose or poetry, if you don’t write your own. Usually, around five minutes is allowed per reader and the atmosphere is relaxed and supportive with Malcolm Carson hosting our popular poetry breakfast. The ticket price includes a hot drink and pastry.

Malcolm Carson was born in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire. He studied English at Nottingham University, and then taught in colleges and universities. He has had four poetry collections published by Shoestring Press: Breccia in 2007, Rangi Changi in 2010, Route Choice, in 2016, The Where and When in 2019, and a pamphlet, Cleethorpes Comes to Paris in 2014.

Borderlines Book Festival has been developed through partnership working between public and private enterprise. The three partners are: Bookends of Carlisle; Cumbria County Council’s Library Service and Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust.
