Here’s to 2017

Well, the Winter Holidays are officially coming to an end today, the sun is sort of shining and the snowdrops and crocuses will soon be out. Having given up the ‘get fitter, lose weight, enrol in some amazing course’ resolutions years ago, my one resolution is realistic: to make 2017 a creatively fulfilling year, working with amazing people (you!) and honing my own writing before perhaps going public with it..

If you have ideas or even a space you’d like to use through in-words.co.uk try me! And above all, please continue to support the writers and poets who come in front of us with so much skill, creativity, humanity and courage.

NIGHT WATCHED – Tuesday 19 January 2021 at 7.30 on Zoom

While still hoping to restart live (properly live) readings in the not so distant future, we still cannot plan for them, too many unknowns…

In the meantime, Night Watched will take place on January 19 on Zoom, with Graham High‘s poetic look at the Astronomers Royal and at what it’s like to migrate through space, the inimitable voice of poet NJ Hynes and award-winning author and journalist Oliver Morton reading from his book The Moon: A History for the Future (Economist Books 2019).

Free by invitation. Email irena@in-words.co.uk to be sent a zoom link nearer the time

With thanks to Paul Kley for this fun picture (and for the poetically licensed image of West Greenwich Library’s dome with kite!)
