Went to poem and a pint in grenodd ulverstone lake district on Saturday. J O Morgan was the headline act. He read from his accomplished book “interference patterns” in different accents which made his poems interesting and enjoyable to listen to. Met the lovely Kim Moore who published “the art of falling” to much well deserved acclaim
Attended wire writers warrington on Friday where we did a well formulated exersise.And two new? members and i read out works in progress.
Looking forward to seeing Anne and Peter Sampson read at the brewery in Kendal. But after a two hour drive realized its next week not ie today! So looking forward to seeing them next week. Booked ticket to see Sarah James at Ledbury poetry festival in early July. And thats all the news on the last week of poetry events. I think actually writing is more important than poetry events. But its nice to go somewhere particularly in summer.
