Alongside my reading at Jermy & Westerman with Rosie Garner I have started an impromptu ‘Poetry Wall’ at Doctor’s Orders Micropub …contributions welcome go to the facebook page for the event here..
Hopefully if we can get the target 50 poems we can make a pamphlet and/or have a open mic event too:-)
ConText was a fully realised book with illustrations by the participants written, edited and bound in a single day with four writers from Inside Out working as a team with 15 inmates of HMP Whatton.
The session ended with inmates reading from the hot off the press publication and Rosie Garner should be congragulated for leading this one day event.
Inside Out are keen to run this event again.
