Happy Mother's Day everyone! We're still recovering from the sold-out wonder of Friday's Purely Poetry, the high has lasted throughout the weekend. sadly, we had to turn people away - there's only so many we can fit in for safety reasons, sorry folks! For those that made it in,we had 33 of you fine folk making us feel every emotion under the sun and then some! When you weren't reading, you were multitasking as part of a very supportive, attentive crowd, So we want to thank all our readers - (deep breath) praise to:
Clodagh Brennan Harvey, Thomas Elliott, Elizabeth McGeown, Laura Cameron, Ray Givans, Helen Hastings, Geraldine O'Kane, Stephen Douglas, Mike Ruffino, David Smylie, Mark Brownlee, Willetta Fleming, Holly Murphy, Patrick McNicholl, Patrick Taggart, Zakk Appleyard, Steve Smith, Mark Cooper, Drea Hodgins, John Mc Guckin, Nathan Elout-Armstrong, David Braziel, Peter Adair, Siobhan McCafferty, Matthew Rice and Dave Wilson.
Also, from our overflow cup, getting in a poem each at the end were:
Ona Harris, Mary Colbertson, Jason Ashford, Robert Wilson, Chaminda Weerawardhana, Martin Rolston and Peter Ormsby.
Many thanks for being a part of our night and sharing your work with us, especially to those who took the mic for the first time! We hope to see you all again next month on the 1st April.
