On Tuesday 15th February, the day after Valentine’s Day, it will be our regular monthly meeting, with an Open Mic (one poem per person, max 40 lines), and then a reading from the admirable Anthony Anaxagorou.
Anthony Anaxagorou is a British-born Cypriot poet. Those of you who joined our workshop that he tutored last year will recall how impressive he was then, and if you haven’t heard him before you are in for a treat. Back in 2002, Anthony won the inaugural Mayor of London’s Respect Poetry Slam (now known as SLAMbassadors UK, the national youth slam championship). In 2015 he was awarded the 2015 Groucho Maverick Award for his poetry and fiction. His most recent collection, After the Formalities (Penned in the Margins) is a Poetry Book Society recommendation, a Guardian poetry book of the year, and was short-listed for the TS Eliot Prize.
Join us for an 8pm start for another exciting evening of poetry.
