September 2016 – Mark Waldron

The summer is hurrying by, but our autumn season is starting with summer weather  still with us, and a welcome to Mark Waldron as our first guest reader.

Mark Waldron was born in New York in 1960 and grew up in London. He works in the advertising business and lives in East London with his wife and son. He began writing poetry in his early 40s. He published two collections with Salt, The Brand New Dark (2008) and The Itchy Sea (2011), and his third collection, Meanwhile, Trees, was published by Bloodaxe in 2016.

“Mark Waldron is like a magpie picking super-sophisticated mixtures of gold and dross from an immense linguistic landfill”  (The Guardian)

The evening begins at 8.00 pm, with an Open mic, so bring along those special poems for us to share.

See you on September 20th!  New members always welcome – come and meet us!
