Leicester is cranking up the gears for a week of (largely) free events with the aim (as it says on the tin) of getting everybody reading. There’s so much to choose from, catering for all ages and appetites from the avid to the most reluctant of readers.
So, if you’re local, or within easy travelling distance of Leicester between 27th September and 5th October, why not click here to view or download the programme.
And there’s an event on page 30 that I’m rather excited about: the launch of my pamphlet, Beyond the Tune (Soundswrite Press). It’s a joint launch with Davina (D A) Prince, whose new collection, Common Ground, is hot off the HappenStance press. I’m delighted and flattered, and really looking forward to meeting Helena Nelson, too, if she’s able to make it on the day. And I’m assured there will be cake and liquid refreshment (I’m hoping for Earl Grey tea) and cake. It’ll make my poetry day to see you there, or at Shindig on September 15th, or both!
There’s a launch flyer in the offing, to feature in my next blog post and further updates on Facebook and Twitter.
As both diary dates are fast approaching, my To Do list Top 10 includes planning which poems to read and what to say. Any launch tips, via the comments box below, will be gratefully received.
