Coverstory books is delighted to announce the readers for our next poetry event.
Each ‘Contextual’ session will have a headline poet who will read for c.20-30 minutes; they will then be followed by a small number of poets who will then read one of their own pieces. During the event there should be a little time for some discussion of the work that has been shared.
Note: these are not ‘Open Mic’ events; specific poets are invited to read in advance of each meeting.
Our third ‘Contextual’ is scheduled for Wednesday 26th January at 19:30 (UK time) and will run until for approximately one hour. The readers are:
- Julia Usman – who will read from “She Who Sings Is Not Always Happy“, published in 2021 by Coverstory books
- Christina Buckton
- Colin Pink
- Helen Scadding
- David Thompson
The meeting will be open around 19:15. On joining all attendees’ microphones will be muted, though the opportunity exists to make comments during the session. The meeting will be recorded so that it can be shared with others unable to make the event ‘live’.
To get an invitation for the event please make your request by completing the form at the bottom of this page.
We have a significant list of poets who have volunteered to read at the Contextual events, so thank you – of course! – to those. We will take the opportunity to hear them in the near future.
