Hi gang,


You’re getting this mailout a little earlier than usual, because I’m going to the US at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning to be a poet for the next couple of weeks, and so I wanted to get information out before I go.  This also means, of course, that I won’t be around for either April’s Loose Muse, or Angel Poetry.  But both gigs are definitely happening, and will be guest hosted by two of my favourite poets.  And of course, if you happen to be in either Texas or Georgia, you might like to rock up and catch me in Austin, San Antonio or Atlanta


With spring just a hairs-breadth away (honest…despite the snow, the air smells different), why  not check out the following gigs to put some warmth back in your veins.   First, on Wednesday, April 9th there’s LOOSE MUSE at the Poetry Café, 22 Betterton Street, London WC2 (closest tube = Covent Garden).  This is London’s only regular event for women writers of all genres, with a warm and wonderful open mike sharing session, plus two featured writers each month.   Featured in April will be the multi-talented poet, actress and performer Aliese Kellner-Joyce bringing us a segment of her kaleidoscopic work – high octane energy and forceful words to mesmerize.  Also featuring on that night the award-winning Annie Brechin who will be reading from some of her high quality poetry and sharing her views on how to get published in poetry magazines.  The night starts at 8.00 p.m -  £5.00/£3.00 concs.  And there’s also chances for you to come and share and explore work in the open mike readings from the floor.   Guest Host for April will be the warm and wonderful Naomi Woddis, to keep you happy on the night.


Next we have ANGEL POETRY on Thursday 10th April  kicking off as usual at 7.00 p.m.  This monthly poetry reading is at Borders Bookshop at the Angel in the N1 Centre Parkfield Street, London N1 – the shopping mall opposite Angel tube station.    March continues with the poetic treat, as we again feature three poets each having a very different style and approach to their work. Guest Host for the night is poet, entrepreneur and founder of Tall Lighthouse publishing, the inimitable Les Robinson, who will be introducing a bevy of three poets as features for the night – first up Janice Fixter followed by Drea King, and last but not least the wonder Tom Chivers,- truly a trio of multi-varied talent that has had poetry lovers awestruck all over the capital and beyond.   There are also floor spots available on the night, so just turn up and let Les know you want to read.    


And both Loose Muse and Angel Poetry are growing in popularity, so come along and share the passion and the joy.


Love, always


Agnes Meadows

Host and fellow poet
