We’re thrilled to be heading to the friendly and poetry-packed Ledbury Festival this weekend as sponsors of a reading by Gillian Clarke, National Poet of Wales and Philip Gross, the 2009 year’s winner of the TS Eliot prize.
We’re proud to have published work from both poets in Magma Poetry; Gillian Clarke’s delicate sonnet, ‘Old Libraries’ appeared in a recent issue, and Philip Gross was our Presiding Spirits featured poet a few issues ago, where he wrote a specially commissioned poem and an article about his connection to Basho.
I’ll be at Burgage Hall, Ledbury, with Roberta James on Saturday 10th July at 2.30 to hear these two poets at the top of their game. We’ll have a sales table right there, so do stop by to say hello. We’d love to see you.
