‘Contextual: 5’ – our March on-line poetry reading is next week!

Following another successful ‘Contextual’ Zoom-based international poetry reading in February – at which we again revelled in over twenty attendees – Coverstory books is delighted to be hosting our fifth ‘Contextual’ poetry reading event on Wednesday 30th March, 2022.

Each ‘Contextual’ session will have a headline poet who will read for c.25 minutes; they will then be followed by a small number of poets who will then read one of their own pieces. There is usually sufficient time along the way for some discussion on the work that has been shared.

These are not ‘Open Mic’ events; specific poets will be invited to read in advance of each meeting.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday 30th March at 19:30 (UK time) and will run until around 20:30.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday 30th March at 19:30 (UK time) and will run until around 20:30. Our headline reader will be Graeme Ryan whose debut collection, Valley of the Kings, is published on the 2nd March.
