As far as we know, Otley is the only town with a Town Poet and Matthew Hedley Stoppard has made a significant impact in this role for the past year – go over to his blog to find out more. We are very pleased that Otley Bid has agreed to extend the funding for this for a further 12 months and OWF Press will continue to support the work of bringing poetry to the town and letting people in other places know about the great poetry heritage of Otley.
