Eat the Storms, my debut poetry pamphlet, published by The Hedgehog Poetry Press, turns 1-year-old on 17th September 2021 and to celebrate I am hosting an evening of Poetry Prose and Friends on zoom starting at 7.30pm Eastern Standard Time with free tickets now available on Eventbrite via the link below. I am hoping this will be the first of many events of sharing voices as I couldn’t invite everyone to read on just one evening and besides, much better to have many parties instead of just one…
