Local Poet Winston Plowes will be ‘Popping Up’ at events and locations throughout the 2012 festival. His project, Found in Hebden will involve a range of experiments in found poetry. Harvesting words form the people of Calderdale and visitors to the festival and from them creating his own work. You can follow his progress online here.
