On 26th February I joined with five colleagues from the Suffolk Poetry Society in a ‘Stanza Bonanza’ – when two teams of poets from different areas join with each other in a sort of friendly contest.
It was held at the Poetry Society’s Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden. We were matched against some excellent poets from Swindon, Wiltshire.
I read one poem inspired by a fungus foraging afternoon organised by Suffolk Wildlife Trust at Knettishall Heath, last year, and also – because I had spent the afternoon at the House of Commons’ first EVER debate on Epilepsy – a poem I’d written on Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, “Lament for a Late Ghost“.
Why not be topical.
I may also be reading this at Woodbridge Library for their next poetry evening, 26 March as will be Purple Day 2015 – Epilepsy Day!
