I’ll be one of six poets giving ten-minute readings at Vale Royal Writers Group and Liverpool’s Dead Good Poets Society joint poetry evening, organised by Cheshire poet Tonia Bevins, at The Blue Cap, Sandiway (near Northwich) on Tuesday 19th August along with Adam Khan, Gill McEvoy, David Bateman, Clare Kirwan and John Lindley. We will also be joined by poet/comperes Sarah Maclennan and Karen Wheatley. We’ll have the sole use of the pub’s patio and garden and – in case of bad weather – an adjoining room.
There will also be an open mic – three sets between 7.30 and 10.45pm (5 mins max – book on the night), and a table available for published poets to bring along their collections and pamphlets to sell. VRWG will be plugging their anthology, The Cheshire Collection, in aid of GOES (Tom Ireland’s Gambia charity) and DGPS will be selling copies of their anthology, The Book.
