Irena Hill of In-Words is celebrating her 50th In-Words event with a unique poetry occasion on Tuesday 13 September from 19.00 BST. It will be Irena’s first get-together in person since the pandemic, in her traditional haunt at the beautiful West Greenwich Library in Greenwich, London SE10, and will be online as well.
I’m thrilled to let you know that she has invited me to be in her selection of readers. I’ll join Fiona Moore (shortlisted for the TS Eliot prize in 2019), Colin Pink, Lorraine Mariner, Graham High, Sarah Westcott, Jane McLaughlin, NJ Hynes and Alex Josephy. More detail about us all is here on Irena’s site, on the right as you scroll down.
I’ve been a blow-in all my life and, having lived in Greenwich and moved again recently, will be reading about place and togetherness, including pieces written since Six-Count Jive was published in 2019.
The event is free. Please let Irena know you’re coming so that she can either admit you on Zoom or know how many chairs we’ll need in the library. See you there!
