Hope Valley literature


After a week of ‘poem a day’ postings, here’s a quick plug for Hope Valley literature fringe event which takes place next Saturday (28th April) in Hathersage. I have the good fortune to be reading at the Outside Café (6.30 – 9.30) alongside local poets Bryony Doran, Cora Greenhill and Sally Goldsmith. Hope some of you can make it.
I’m also reading with the Penistone Poets this Tuesday (6.30pm, Café Crème, High Street, Penistone). Our reading is really the warm up for Rosemary Badcoe who will be reading from her first collection, Drawing a Diagram. Rosemary is one of the editors of the online poetry magazine Antiphon, so it promises to be an interesting and informative evening. Free entry. All welcome.

In the meantime, back to my redacted texts, although I’m not going to post any more this week. By yesterday, I felt I was running out of steam, although there is something to be said for posting them as a sequence, over the course of a week. I might give it another go later in the year. For now, I’m going back to one post per week or thereabouts. Otherwise, I don’t have enough time for the poetry!
