(We have a new BLOG PAGE – q.v.)

*  On Thursday 27 September (RBL, 7.30 for 8.00pm), our guest reader will be the highly respected poet Michael Bartholomew-Biggs. This, the opening event of the Essex Poetry Festival, will include the “soft launch” of Without Walls with readings from some of our local contributors.

Without Walls is the anthology of new poetry, prose, and illustration in aid of Colchester’s homeless compiled by Alice Goss; some of the poems are contributed by members of Poetrywivenhoe and Colchester Mosaic.  The “soft launch” is at the Royal British Legion Wivenhoe on 27 September, and the “big launch” will be at Colchester Arts Centre on Sunday 14 October – more about that in due course.
