Join David Wilson and James Caruth for Peak District-inspired poetry.

In its preoccupation with line and space the climbing experience is akin to poetry. David Wilson’s The Equilibrium is a stunning collection of poems celebrating climbing in all its forms, from bouldering on Yorkshire grit, to traditional climbs in the Peak District, ice climbs on Ben Nevis, the Alps and further afield.

James Caruth’s Speechless at Inch is a hymn to nature, people and places (including the Peak District). Perceptive and compassionate, these poems tell stories that draw the reader in and remind us of what matters in our relationships with each other and the natural world.

Celebrating 70 years of the Peak District National Park

Off the Shelf, delivered by the University of Sheffield, has grown into one of the largest literary festivals in the UK, attracting some of the best-known names in literature and media to Sheffield each year.
