For a devilishly exciting way to spend midsummer eve, we would love for you to join us for the launch reading of Magma 47. The reading takes place on Monday 21 June in the Coffee-House Poetry series at the Troubadour Coffee House, 265 Old Brompton Road, London SW5 . It’s a prompt start at 8 p.m., and you’ll need to come early to bag a seat near the front. Or come even earlier and mingle with poets and the Magma team beforehand over a mushroom omelette and chips in the restaurant upstairs.
Annie Freud will be introducing the evening and co-hosting. A goodly number of poets have each agreed to read a poem, and we are delighted that the Magma showcase poet Dorothea Smartt will be sharing some of her work, plus we are thrilled to confirm that the guest readers are Jo Shapcott and Matthew Sweeney.
Here are directions to the venue.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday.
