I’ve just started reading (and very much enjoying) We Are The Lizards, Margaret Jennings first published poetry collection. Margaret is also published by Dempsey & Windle, and I will be interviewing her as part of Portsmouth Bookfest on February 17th – in fact, it’s the first event of Bookfest this year – no pressure then!
If anyone has any particular questions they would like asked, please let me know in the comments below
Details on the event are below –
An evening full of poetry: an interview with local poet Margaret Jennings, readings, discussion and the chance to share your own work.
About this Event
An Evening of Poetry – brought to you by T’Articulation.
A convivial soiree with local poets, published and from the spoken word circuit.
An interview of Margaret Jennings, Portsmouth’s recently published new poet, will be conducted by Richard Williams who has a most excellent collection of his own with the same publishing house. This will be followed by themed readings from the work of a number of local poets. We will also delve into their techniques. Following on, there’ll be opportunities for the audience to share their own work. Oh, and a surprise on the night, if we’re lucky – which we will be because I’ve just had availability confirmed.
Food and drink can be bought from the cafe, throughout the evening.
A book stall of poetry books by local authors (who would love to sign one just for you) will be complemented by secondhand offerings of anthologies from other, well established, poets.
