Porlock Arts Festival

October 26, 2012 | Press & Publicity

On September 14 TLC Director Rebecca Swift appeared at the Porlock Arts Festival to talk about TLC, and all things Emily Dickinson.

Of her appearance, the festival blog stated: 

‘On stage in the evening we had Rebecca Swift and Tom Hodgkinson.  Rebecca spoke passionately and with great warmth about American poet Emily Dickinson.  She seems to have been an unusual lady but the extracts of her poetry that Rebecca read revealed a wonderful and extraordinary language of expression and description.  I know of several people who have been inspired to seek out more of her poetry.  Rebecca also spoke briefly about her role as co-founder of The Literary Consultancy, the UK’s leading manuscript advisory service – a must for anyone wishing to publish their work!’
