The poetry critique group started about 15 years ago and is a varied group of people who meet twice a month to read, discuss and critique each other’s poetry with a view to encouraging and improving their poetry. Along with the Poetry Critique, the group organises occasional Readings and Workshops.
Labyrinth (Amstelveenseweg 53, 1075VT Amsterdam, Netherlands) is a cocktail, food & poetry bar based in Amsterdam Zuid next to the Vondelpark. Labyrinth serves delicious food, special cocktails and regularly organises poetry events. Through the art of poetry and spoken word Labyrinth aims to bring people in their diversity together.
The Other Side of Sleep is well and truly launched – Oxford on Tuesday, London yesterday, and Brighton tonight. I’ll keep it brief got to get packed up – come to Bom-Bane’s Cafe George Street Brighton (not Hove, actually, in this case) tonight 8pm (IT’s NATIONAL POETRY DAY) for poems by Elinor Brooks, Jill Sharp, j.lewis, Andrew McCallum, and Sam Small read by Elinor, Jonathan Rice and Kevin Cherry. Plus music from Jane Bom-Bane.
In the meantime compare and contrast two readings of Orion by Simon Brod, the first half from last night at Lauderdale House, the second from Tuesday at Albion Beatnik. We had a great time at both and look forward to a tremendous evening in Brighton.
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!
