Poetry Space Summer Highlights

Poetry Space has had a great Summer!

June marked the publication of Jo Waterworth's book My Father Speaks in Poetry Too and this has moved everyone who has read it.

"I was in tears by the end – so simple and unpretentious and beautiful."

Victoria Field, Writer and Poetry Therapist

"I was very taken with not only Jo's moving poems but also with the feel of the book's textured pages - as I ran my fingers across each page.  And the illustrations are stunning." 

Di Coffey

The lovely illustrations by Willow Roe have also made this very special:

In July we launched Through a Child's Eyes at The Penzance Festival:

Our thanks go to Edge of the World Bookshop for hosting this event for us. We had readings from Anna Maria Mickiewicz, Caroline Carver, Les Merton, Moira Andrew, Angela Croft, Sheila Bracewell And Di Coffey.

"It is a beautiful and moving Anthology with wonderful, wonderful poems. I am so pleased to have two of my poems included in it."
