London launch – guest readers announced

It’s going to be a great evening of poetry on Wednesday 1st October (the day before National Poetry Day) at the Poetry Cafe in London – the last of our 3 launch events to introduce Telltale Press and launch Peter Kenny’s The Nightwork.

We’ve now booked our two guest poets – they are Anja Konig and Rishi Dastidar.

Anja Konig


Rishi Dastidar

I met Anja on a Ty Newydd Masterclass last autumn with Carol Ann Duffy and Gillian Clarke. She’s super-talented and about to launch her first pamphlet with Flipped Eye. Rishi is a poet I’ve had conversations with on Twitter (he’s @BetaRish) and I’ve followed his poetry for a while. He’s part of the very cool Complete Works II. 

Do come if you can, and tell everyone you know, it would be so encouraging to have a good crowd.
