Spoken Word Session Submissions

Our theme for 2021 is still the historic voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 and so we are appealing for all budding or established writers to contribute to our popular “Spoken Word” sessions with a piece about the Mayflower.

This can be in any form you like, poem, prose, story and can be interpreted as you like. We also welcome readings of any existing work if you wish to take part in this way. With the Festival over six months away, there is plenty of time to plan so we hope that as many of you as possible will take part.

We’re always looking for something original, some poetry, prose or narrative that’s never been heard elsewhere before and especially if you’re not a published author or social media specialist? Right now we don’t want the piece itself, but please do come along to one of the informal sessions held over the Festival weekend where you can join with other contributors.

Many thanks to Matthew Crampton for the link to his narration about Harwich and the Mayflower from last year, if you haven’t already watched the video, please do so. Perhaps it will inspire something brand new?

  1. Hi Harwich
    Here’s a piece I recorded for the radio about Harwich and the Mayflower, then added pictures and turned into a youtube.

    It’s based on my show Human Cargo for last year’s online Harwich festival and is similar to words and music shows I’ve performed before at your wonderful festival.
    Best wishes, Matthew
