May morning

Wishing you spring joy, spring solidarity, green of the leaves and red of the workers.

Every Maytide Dinah Livingstone reads at Torriano. Here she reads two poems for us, ‘Common’ and ‘The old campaigner’

Torriano closed but keeps on

We are not hosting meetings at the Meeting House until it is safe to do so again. But we have a community, creativity, a website and an email list. We are looking into continuing to host remote poetry gatherings, exhibitions and other events so keep connected and throw in ideas and skills to make this happen.howard 2

A collective decision was made to cancel the reading on Sunday 15 March. We will welcome everyone to hear Carol de Vaughn, Katherine Gallagher, Tim Waller and Julian Bishop read later in the year when all is well.
