Six poets (Claire Booker, Catherine Brennan, Oliver Commins, Mark Fiddes and Tanya Prudente) shared their work with a lively audience and some fascinating medical glassware in display cabinets at the front of the room!
I read two of my poems from the new Templar anthology ‘Skein’ which contains work selected from Templar’s 2014 Pamphlet & Collection Awards. Beautifully produced and reasonably priced, it’s one more example of the quality publications we’ve grown to expect from Templar, including their latest poetry collections – Mesopotamia by Damian Smyth; The Fool from Christopher James and Beetle by Matthew Henley.
Templar Poetry publishes full collections, short, medium and full length pamphlets plus Iota Poetry Magazine. Three Annual Poetry Awards bring new poets to Templar, so look out for submission deadlines in 2015 if you’d like to be part of this impressive stable. You can also enjoy more Templar Poetry readings live at Keat’s House, including Jane Weir and Patrick Toland on Tues 24th Feb at 7.00pm
