So many good things happening on Project 2017. Here are just a few which came in this week…. click the names on this post to reach the personal Pages of the writers featured here and learn more about their news.
2016 Templar Poetry Straid Collection Winner RUTH SHARMAN has just joined Project 2017 to work on the poems of French writer Philippe Jaccottet. Ruth will be Guest Reading at Dawn Gorman’s excellent, Words & Ears at The Swan in Bradford on Avon, on Thursday 26th January next week.
Widely published Exeter poet CHRISSY BANKS has just joined Project 2017 as a long-distance member of the group. Chrissy will be working towards a second full collection. Take a look at the website which heads her Page on the Project blog and which can also be accessed here.
Fresh from his success with A Fury of Yellow from Eyewear in 2016, ROBIN THOMAS now has a forthcoming collection to be published by Cinnamon. Robin will be bringing a sequence of poems to share with us during the Meetups in April and July.
Project 2017 Convenor SUE BOYLE will be Guest Reading at Ware Poets in Hertfordshire on Friday 3rd February with a new programme titled Safe Passage: the secret history of a poet’s life.
CLAIRE DYER and RUTH SHARMAN both appear on the May 15th billing at Anne-Marie Fyfe’s impossibly prestigious London Troubadour. A date for everyone to circle in their poetry diaries. Be there if you can. And, if you haven’t been to the Troubadour before, prepare to be amazed!
FINALLY, unless the tiny number of stragglers don’t mail in their cheques by the end of this month, this year’s Cafe Writing Days are now virtually fully booked. This has been the fastest ever booking for a Cafe Workshop series – and no wonder, when you read the names of the talented writers already on the list, and the wonderful variety of challenging projects they intend to share.
