I was up in London at Kings Place this week
despite the fact I have had problems with my eyes and hate the the cold weather! Well my eyes were settling and I had already bought a ticket for Poetry London’s Spring magazine launch so it seemed a pity to waste it.
Ahren Warner hosting, Tim Dooley taking his exit as Reviews Editor. http://poetrylondon.co.uk/free-running/ both in good form.
I booked partly to hear Roddy Lumsden, as I have never attended one of his readings. But he was indisposed and it fell to Mark Waldron to read Roddy’s poetry instead, the well worn phrase ‘a sterling job’ comes to mind.
A K Blakemore and Robert Herbert were on the bill too, but I particularly warmed to much of Rebecca Perry’s poetry who brought the proceedings to an end and I could scurry back to the outskirts of Brighton!
Poetry London is a charitable trust and gets money from Arts Funding so naturally they are desperate for support…every little helps!
