January at the Poetry Cafe

RhonaMcAdam_AuthorPhoto2_CreditAlexisYobbagyWe’re planning another Telltale & Friends reading at the Poetry Cafe on January 7th 2015, when one of our guest readers will be Rhona McAdam, a fine Canadian poet whose sixth full-length poetry collection, Ex-ville, is published by Oolichan Books this month.

Rhona spent some years in London and still returns regularly, so we’re delighted she can join us in January.

Meanwhile we’re also hoping to introduce the next Telltale Poet – exciting!

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.
