Coming soon…The Aldeburgh Eight Shuffle!

I will be reading with the other members of the 2015 Aldeburgh Eight at this event at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden, London on 27th February, starting at 7.30pm.

Come and hear the eight poets chosen by The Poetry Trust for its week long residential seminar last November, part of the 2015 Aldeburgh Festival.

Poet and seminar co-leader Jackie Wills introduces:

John Challis (Tyne and Wear)
Josephine Corcoran (Wiltshire)
Suzannah Evans (Sheffield)
Sean Hewitt (Cheshire)
Anita Pati (London)
Kathy Pimlott (London)
Andrew Rudd (Cheshire)
Miranda Yates (New Mills)

£6 / £4. Doors open 7.00pm for 7.30pm start. Bar available.

This event feels particularly important to me given the recent discontinuation of the Poetry Trust, who ran the Aldeburgh Eight seminar among the many wonderful things they did for poetry and especially for new poets. Hopefully this will be a night to celebrate all those things and keep that generous spirit alive!
