Dear Magma Friends, Supporters and Subscribers,
We are very sorry to have to let you know that our Magma 2019/20 Poetry Event to be held at the Poetry Cafe on 18 March next Wednesday has been cancelled. We discussed this with great sadness, but as you are all well aware the coronavirus is not going away anytime soon and we do not think it is appropriate to celebrate at this time and put people at risk in a crowded room.
Of course we will aim to celebrate at a later date – either with an event or by inviting winning and commended poets to read at a future launch.
We are also very sorry that you are going to miss the wonderful Caroline Bird who was our fabulous Judge for this competition.
We await better times. Stay safe and well.
With all the very best,
