It’s been a lot of fun, listening to diverse voices of work by published and unpublished writers, and seeing people get their public speaking feet wet. I shall be there tonight, reading my latest autumn poem, and another favourite (and what it has to do with the novel I’m working on.)

Come and share your poetry or short piece of prose, or just to listen. It’s a free event, hosted by author, Margaret Holbrook.

7.30-9.30 p.m.
