Best Ever Afternoon of Good Poetry at the Bath Poetry Cafe

Day programme cover design 26 September copy

We are almost there!  The programme for the Afternoon is in print. Twenty three amazing poets are gathering from far and wide to share their twenty six amazing shortlisted poems with each other and with the Cafe Judges in the fabulous Elwin Room.  At the end of the Afternoon, distinguished artist and film-maker CLIVE WALLEY from Frome will be announcing the final results of our competition – four winning poems chosen by Picador poet RACHAEL BOAST.  Clive will reveal Rachael’s comments on the four poems, and her response to the entry as a whole. While you wait for all that excitement, of course, please remember that fourteen of the listed poems appear already on this blog, with my personal attempts to unravel why each appealed to me so much.  I am extremely grateful to the poets who were generous enough to let me try this experiment. Running this competition has been a complete joy.  I hope every poet who joins us on Saturday will have a rewarding and enriching day.

  2. Hi Sue,            Did I say that I couldn’t make the reading next Saturday? I can. I thought I said I could, but these days I have little trust in what I think I said. Whether I get to read or not, I look forward to being at the event.
