Saturday 27 March 2021: Poetry (please) – Open Mic Event
ACW seems to have a growing number of poets. At this open mic session online nearly twenty poets with various degrees of experience in writing poetry will read examples of their work. There will also be some time in groups for discussion about good places to share/publish poetry.
NB: This is not a just-turn-up-and-take-part session. All those who want to read have already put their names forward during January 2021. But participants with no poetry to read are welcome too, in fact, we hope there will be an audience of poetry-lovers who will want to be present to encourage their fellow writers and join the conversation about platforms for poets.
There will be one poem from each contributor in the morning when we hope to think about some more serious topics, and a second poem from each poet during the afternoon, striking a more light-hearted note.
Places are free for ACW members and £5 per computer for non-members. The email confirming your place will contain an outline of the day and details of how to make a voluntary financial contribution to the work of ACW, should you wish to do so. The Zoom codes will be sent out the day before the event to the email address you use for booking. (Please note that Gmail and some other providers sometimes put group emails into the spam folder. Check your inbox thoroughly before contacting us to say you have not received the codes.)
Any questions contact Jane Brocklehurst on firstname.lastname@example.org but be aware, she does not check the ACW inbox every day. Thank you for your patience.
