Boxers, lemons and baths

Well our last meeting of the summer was such an enjoyable one, good company, good writing and the sun came out.  We had the advertised poem from Lynn featuring a boxer and some lemons - are you intrigued?  Well, I'm not going to tell you any more about it except that it was really good and you should have been there to hear it for yourselves, so there.  Then a reading from Clare who is still working out a way to meld the past and the present within her latest piece,  which last night featured a Pre-Raphaelite muse in a bath - see, you really should have been there.  And last but not least, there was Mary's poem also in a way about the past and the present - she will be reading more of her poems on Sunday 20th for Birkbeck Poets at the Duke of Wellington, Balls Pond Rd, London, NI at 19:00.

And a special mention goes to Naa who excelled herself and filled the night with, um, well a certain joi de vivre shall we say.  What a woman, she never ceases to amaze :-)

So thank you Naa and everyone else for making last night such a success, it makes it even sadder to say goodbye for the summer, but never fear, we will be back Oct 2nd - and we hope to see you then.

In the meantime we will still post here any literary get together's or competitions that come our way...

So have a great summer and most importantly -  keep writing!

Nice One

Well, I must say it was really good to get back to the group, I really miss it when there's a long gap between us all meeting up.  It was especially good last night as not only did we hear a very good, not to mention topical, poem from Clare, but we also had two newbies turn up.  It's always nice to have new people coming along, and even more so when they bring along such good work.  We all really liked Dustin's piece about a young couple who don't seem to have a lot in common any more.  It's just a shame that he is leaving town on Sunday  (I still really don't get what the stigmata was all about, but whatever...)  It was good to meet Deborah as well, and I hope she kept her promise to type up her story once she got back home ;-)  See you all on the 19th!

15th May

Oh dear, the group will not be meeting tonight :-(  We are very sorry and we realise that this is very short notice, but we have only just been informed of a problem by BAR who have assured us that they have taken steps to ensure that this doesn't happen again.  So I guess it's onwards and upwards and here's to the June 5th meeting- which will be happening, come hell or high water!
So keep those words, ideas and inspiration flowing and we will see you in June.
