from Coffee-House Poetry organiser, Anne-Marie Fyfe

Thu 1st July

Most impressed (at yesterday’s Zoom session) by the poems/sequences poets have produced over past four creative-writing weeks on Solitary Spaces. So waitlist-ers will be glad to know I’m re-running from next Sunday (12th Jul) with a few places still available. (Details re booking etc on classes page.)
With staying-in as the new going out, find time to join us on a journey into aspects of isolation & escape, alienation & absence, reflection & retreat, stillness, silence, solitude…  & longing – beyond lockdown – for endings & new beginnings! 
And do check out the re-launched Troubadour International Poetry Prize 2020 with judges Mona Arshi & Mark Doty, now back on line with a closing date of Mon 28 Sep & £3,500 in prizes, full details on our prizes page!
Stay safe, & all best wishes…
