We decided to do something for World Poetry Day, this Sunday the 21st of March.
All proceeds from these events will go to Shelter, because if the pandemic has taught us anything it is that homelessness is something we can do something about… if we want to.
Michaela will be doing a live ‘poetry in to clay’ on FB, You can check this out by via our FB page here.
We will be auctioning a one-off seatree assemblage (again, to raise money for Shelter);
…and I will be doing this;
LIVE POETRY READING ‘The times we live in now’
Sunday afternoon, 21st March, from 3.30, via zoom.
Join us if you can- with the warning (in case you needed it) that my poetry is not for the faint of heart. It offers no easy answers or shallow comfort. It does not shrink from disturbing, unsettling issues, but (I like to believe) it also reaches towards hope…
The intention is to have three parts to the reading, focussing on before/during/after pandemic. How many poems we read will depend very much on those of you who participate… and how much chat we have (please be kind!)
I will be reading my way though a lot of poems written during the lockdowns, hopefully with a bit of explaination and discussion as we go along.
