We enjoyed excellent sonnets and a clever piece of satire on American air-drop policies, from Eddie Chauncy, and delightfully slant observations of people from Martin Jones. Gareth Toms and Richard Williams had come up from Portsmouth to read, and we met a new poet, known to us only as Cameron. We hope to see him again - his work was excellent. Andy Low read his elegant, delicate love-poems, Graham Brown had more of his cheeky little vignettes and Tracey Marion read her slam-winning poem, "Anorexia" and two excellent new ones. There was time for me to read, too, which Dónall insisted upon and I enjoyed.
Looking forward to 16th September!
