Dear poets and friends.

Don’t forget: No Lumen or Camden poetry readings during August. Thank you to everyone who has attended so far this year and for helping to raise much needed money for cold weather shelters for the homeless.

See you all in September when our readings commence on Friday 7th September at Camden (1, Buck Street) followed on Tuesday 18th September at Lumen (88, Tavistock Place).

Have a wonderful Summer!

Dear Poets,
This is your last chance to be considered for being one of the main poets at that fantastic venue Beyond Words in September and tonight I will be collecting names for possible readers. Do come and let us hear one of your poems. – Ruth O’Callaghan
