Thanks to Robin for inviting me to read alongside Telltale poets Sarah Barnsley and Robin Houghton as well as upcoming poet Rebecca White. All readings bounced off each other well… oddly fire engines featured in three poets’ readings and lichen seemed to be peeling in two. Great audience – it is a really chilled, intimate space…
The upstairs room at the Lewes Arms is great for poetry readings – intimate, so need for a mic, but with a small stage. It’s also pretty quiet, unless the windows are open, in which case there’s inevitably a bit of noise from outside. If there are 30 people there it’s packed.
Anyway, the point is we had a super-relaxed Telltale Press & Friends night there on Wednesday, with a full room and attentive audience. Great to see so many poet friends and supporters.
Thank you to everyone who came, and see you at the next one – date and venue tbc but probably in the summer – make sure you join our mailing list if you’re not already on it, and we’ll keep you posted.
