Contextual: 13 – some great work to end the year!

Yesterday evening we held our last Contextual virtual poetry reading event for 2022. It was another good turnout – and it proved to be a successful evening with an eclectic selection of work once again!

My thanks to our readers – David Punter (reading from his book Ship’s Log), Lizzie Ballagher, Jenny Robb (who read from her new book The Dolls’ Hospital) and Barbara Sapienza. There was also an extract from an experimental ‘long form’ work-in-progress from Ian Gouge.

And of course thanks to the rest of those who attended the session and made valuable contributions throughout.

Our next event will be THURSDAY 26th JANUARY, 19:30 start (UK-time). If you would like an invitation to the event please complete the form below.
