A magnificent night, a full house with standing room only and a fine compliment of poets reading from Seren Book’s publication Poems from the Borders.
A huge thank you to Chris and Melanie Prince who hosed the event in the poetically plush environs of Hay’s extremely well stocked Poetry Bookshop (see above). Also, to the very able Amy Wack, editor at Seren who introduced the readings and wrangled the poets (perhaps like herding cats, but far more difficult), including Hay Writers’ Circle member, Emma van Woerkom.
Other poets reading on the night included Christopher Meredith, Rhiannon Hooson, Elizabeth Parker, Nicholas Whitehead, Gareth Writer-Davies, Nicholas Murray and Maggie Harris. The audience was treated to a superb array of diverse poetic voices all celebrating individual works of local interest.
Poem’s from the Borders – Seren Books 2019, £5.00 (+postage) is available from The Poetry Bookshop, Hay-on-Wye and from all good book suppliers.
