Ruth O’Callaghan presents: Paul Blake, Jacqueline Gabbitas and Anna Robisnson.

Poets from the floor are very welcome. Please bring a copy of the poem you read if you wish to be considered for the new anthology.

Trinity United Reform Church, 1 Buck Street, Camden Town (nearest tube is Camden Town – a one or two minute walk)

Entrance £5 (£4 concessions). Wine will be available before start and during the interval.

All money raised goes to help fund cold weather shelters for the homeless.

If you’re a bluechrome author and would like to take part in a special reading organised by Sue Guiney then get in touch. bluechrome authors are invited to read from their books at this event, with proceeds going to support the Cold Weather Shelters.

Sue is known at the Camden and Lumen events and was in the last anthology, Genius Floored. The Camden and Lumen project also includes other bluechrome authors, so if this sounds like you then leave a comment here if you’d like to take part.

You can also ask to take part by clicking on the Facebook link to the left of this page and leave a comment there, or ask at the next Camden or Lumen event. Even if you haven’t been involved with Camden and Lumen or the Cold Weather Shelters before this could be a good time to start if you’re a bluechrome author or would like to attend the event.

This reading is likely to be quite a get-together as the bluechrome authors are a wonderful bunch and it’s a pity this publisher is no longer active. It will be a celebration of the creative talent of the authors and a time to move on to new projects.

This event could go on tour,  and if you’d like to arrange a similar one in your region let Adele Ward know so that she can help you get the word out.

The event will be in St Benet Church, Queen Victoria Street, London EC4V 4ER on Thursday, 22 April at 6.30pm for 7.00pm. Admission will be £4 and will go to support the Cold Weather Shelters.

There’s now a Facebook group for Camden and Lumen Poetry. This has been set up in response to feedback about the website, because people said they liked to be able to keep in touch online between events. This is particularly important for participants who enjoy the project but live all over the UK and beyond, and might not be able to get to London regularly.

The Facebook group will also let other people find out about Camden and Lumen Poetry and all members will be able to invite people from their contacts list. It’s such a worthwhile project to champion poetry and to help the homeless, and this should help spread the word.

It’s also possible to leave comments on the Facebook group page, and there’s a discussion forum if you’d like to raise some topics for debate. It doesn’t all have to be serious. Just introducing yourself and putting a link to your website is a great idea. Although many people at the events know each other well, a website link helps newcomers and let’s us all pass an enjoyable time reading each other’s work.

To get to the Facebook group you can click on the link to the left of this page. Alternatively you can search for Camden and Lumen when you’re on Facebook. Let the conversations begin!
