World Poetry Day is like Christmas Day for poets, usually lots of events on offer. I am usually involved in organising something special but with the plates I am spinning it crept up on me this year, so I spent Friday night panning for gold.
This is what I came up with:
Apples & Snakes organised 3 international workshops which have been productive and I even have a poem I am fairly happy with to work on.
Jean Atkin has collaborated with artist Katy Alston and they have their Fair Acre Press Book Launch today with John Sewell, Carl Tomlinson and Steve Griffiths.
Later, the wonderful Rose Condo has organised 21 poets from all over the world to perform for a special event to mark World Poetry Day.
The poems I have read today come from my current read, The Mizzy by Paul Farley.
