Coverstory books was delighted to host our fifth ‘Contextual’ poetry reading event at the end of March. Once again we had over twenty attendees from multiple countries for the hour-long session
The next Contextual event is on Thursday 28th April, 1930 UK-time.
Here is a list of our readers for Contextual: 6. We are excited to announce that our main reader will be Eleanor Swanson who will read from her new book which will be hot off the press!

Her work has appeared in the Southern Review, Black Warrior Review, the Denver Quarterly, the Bloomsbury Review, the American Poetry Journal, and in many other notable publications.
