As announced at the last Camden meeting we will be reinstating the featured poets spot at both venues. Poets will be chosen from the floor readers at the previous meeting. The chosen floor poet at Camden in December Bridget Sebastian will read at the next Camden in January. The Lumen venue will follow a similar pattern. Obviously the more you attend the greater the chance of being chosen. This holds also for readings in other venues (Poetry Cafe, Beyond Words, RFH plus others,) to which we have been invited. Opportunities to read within Camden /Lumen venues either as a featured poet or, indeed, a main poet will occur each month.
