It’s been a lot of fun, listening to diverse voices of work by published and unpublished writers, and seeing people get their public speaking feet wet.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.

Address: 29 Market St, Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak SK23 0HP

Poultry and Poetry in Poynton

11th September Poynton OpenMic –  Guest Poet is Helen Kay (Poultry Lovers Guide to Poetry)

I don’t have any hen poems, although I do have one called ‘Game Bird in Autumn’ which I shall read, and my latest, on this National Poetry Month theme of Freedom.

Hosted by local writer, Margaret Holbrook, the events take place on the second Monday of every month at the charming UBAgenes in Poynton – the food and drink is as fresh and classy as the decor, by the way. Apart from the guest writers, everyone is invited to read from their own work or favourite authors and poets, or sit back and be entertained by the others. 7.30 p.m – 9.30 pm.
