June at Kulturá

We had a super evening of poetry at this month’s Kulturá.

Sheila Wild captivated us with her lecture on “Poetry and the Art of Unsaying” and Michael Conley delighted us with poems from his book ‘Aquarium’.

8 poets read in the open mic section: 
  • Anthony Costello
  • Shirley-Anne Kennedy
  • Eileen Earnshaw
  • Marion Tonge
  • Annie Phillips
  • Jacqui Phillips
  • Robert Baylis
  • Bob Horne 
with poems and prose on such diverse subjects as mineral trees, childhood traumas, love, escaped gorillas, life experiences, poetry police, environmental scientists, festival T-shirts and others.

Our audience included writer, theatre and spoken word artist Emma Decent as well as members of her life writing classes.

In July we have Ben Wilkinson as feature poet and Steve Ely giving the fourth Kulturá poetry lecture.

Thanks to the staff at Kava Café, Todmorden for accommodating us and to Dale Hibbert and his wife Sveta for providing us with the venue.
