4 Poets

Another thoughtful and varied offering from Cinnamon Press. The voices of Robin Thomas, Neil Elder, Frank Dullaghan and Daphne Gloag were so distinctive and yet a theme emerged through the evening. I bet it wasn’t coincidental – Jan Fortune KNEW… The theme was ‘time’ and ‘love’. You may say that in poetry these are ‘normal’. But the way they were treated and delivered was so different – touching, funny, full of unexpected images which were so perfect that they didn’t feel unexpected but just right.

Unfortunately Daphne couldn’t join us in person but her intimate, moving and original words were beautifully read by Jan.

Events

I wish to thank all the people, new faces and familiar ones, who have recently attended in-words Zoom events. And of course all the poets who have given us the gift of their wonderful art and have helped publicise the readings through their own networks.

I am so very lucky to have got to know such talented and generous poets and writers.

Look out for more events in the fairly near future, but not in April. I will use the time to plan ahead for more readings on Zoom and, who knows, some live ones as well.

Do continue to stay safe and well, and see you again before too long!
