NB CHANGE OF VENUE THIS MONTH
This month we have pleasure in welcoming Paul McGrane. For this month only, the event will take place in the upstairs room of The Rendezvous on Camden Road. The evening begins with a very brief AGM at 8.00, followed by Paul’s reading.
Paul McGrane is the co-founder of the Forest Poets poetry collective in Walthamstow and has also been The Poetry Society’s Membership Manager since 2006. He runs the Poetry@3 open mic at the Poetry Café, London, on the first Thursday of the month. In 2016 he was Highly Commended in the YorkMix Poetry Competition and Longlisted in the South Bank Poetry Competition.
His first poetry collection, Elastic Man, was published in JULY 2018
“Paul McGrane’s voice is sexy, witty, humane. His poems are carefully crafted, often very moving, frequently laugh-aloud funny. Here is a confident, intelligent writer with a strong sense of social justice. A varied and accessible collection which deserves to do really well. I loved it.” Carole Bromley
We hope you will join us for a drink and a chat before the evening activities formally begin.
