The Poetry Place
September 27 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Dawn Gorman will be welcoming guest poets Julia Deakin and Dominic Fisher, plus local and not-so-local open mic-ers including Rosie Jackson, Wendy Klein, Kate Pawsey, Ray Fussell, Eileen Ann Gordon, Prathiba Castle, Nick Sorensen and John Richardson.
Look out for some wonderful, serendipitous themes running through the show, with poets gazing at blue skies, night skies and the sea, not to mention dropping in on some notable characters, including Medusa, Dedalus and Wonder Woman!
Julia Deakin is the editor of Pennine Platform poetry magazine. Her work has appeared on Poetry Please. Simon Armitage said of her first collection: ‘Crafted, tender poems, written with passion and purpose’; her latest is Sleepless (Valley Press 2018). Bristol-based Dominic Fisher won the international Bristol Poetry Prize 2018, and his collection The Ladies and Gentlemen of the Dead was published by The Blue Nib in March 2019.
