Launching The Other Side of Sleep: Naming: AD 2006

Some of our poets are very obliging about helping to promote The Other Side of Sleep, here is Alwyn Marriage reading at Oxford and London

There are messages buried in this poem, but without Alwyn to explain them you are unlikely to discover them…

The Other Side of Sleep London Launch

We are launching our newest book, The Other Side of Sleep in a series of events over the end of September and beginning of October. This is the (north) London one, being held in conjunction with our very first Art exhibition. The book is another first for us, as it is poetry.We always said we’d do poetry and now here we are doing it. In Style, with Long Narrative poems, minimum 40 lines (if you have ever thought about sending poetry to a publisher or a competition you will understand the significance!) Other launches, minus art work, in Oxford and Brighton, and later in south London, Middlesbrough and Amsterdam!
