Wonderful words at Purely Poetry last night, what a great way to start the New Year, with a packed room of people revelling in the love of poetry.
Many thanks to all our readers. We officially introduced a new system thst we've been trying out, to make sure as many people as possible can read. Once all the regular seven-minute slots were filled, we now have an Overflow Cup, where if there's any extra time at the end, we'll hear one poem each just from the names in the cup. Yes, our cup doth overfloweth with poetical goodness!
Our readers were:
Laura Cameron, Kate Smeltzer, Cathaoir Patrick, Siobhan McCafferty, Ona Harris, Patrick Taggart, Jackie Rock, Zakk Appleyard, Willetta Fleming, Mel Bradley, Clodagh Harvey, Vincent Creelan, Ellie Rose McKee, Craig McKay, Peter Adair, Peter Francis Fahy Tim Roope, David Smylie, Thomas Elliott, Andrew Ward, Mark Cooper, Patrick McNicholl, Geraldine O'Kane, Azeem Latiff, Jenny Cleland, David Braziel, Khadija Shaw, Steve Smith,Nathan Thanki and Avita Thanki.
Also many thanks to Jenny Cleland for the awesome live sketches of some of our readers and poetry community. We are back for more of the same on the first Friday in February, we hope you can join us then! DEMAND POETRY.
