Event Type: Poetry Writing Workshop
Noel Whittall is well-known for writing and performing his poetry in and around Leeds for many years.
He is a keen supporter of Otley Poets and founded the thriving Poetry Gym series of monthly writing workshops. He also established the Poetry on the Wall display system which put the work of local poets, as well as old and famous ones, before wide audiences in the waiting areas of the Leeds Hospitals Trust.
Far from the popular image of the poet as an angst-ridden loner in a garret, Noel is often found enjoying an active role in the world of antique motorcycles, about which two of his books have recently been published.
His latest poetry collection 2014 is Speak Another Language
