Reading and Workshop at the Quaker Meeting House, 12 October

at 43 St Giles  Oxford

Philip Gross and Lesley Saunders will read from their book A PART OF THE MAIN: A CONVERSATION (Mulfran, 2019), a dialogic poem, even an improvisation, born of the difficult feelings and public discord arising from the events of 2016.
Philip is a Quaker as well as a T.S.Eliot prize winner and author of 20 collections of poems.
Lesley is author of several books of poetry, most recently Nominy-Dominy  (Two Rivers Press, 2018). She is a creative collaborator with many other ‘makers’ of  different art forms.
Lesley and Philip first met through a collaborative poetry venture A Game of Consequences in which 26 poets were invited to share their thoughts and feelings about living in a nuclear age.

This reading will be at 6.30 for 7pm till 9pm on Sat. October 12th
For the reading: free admission +  a collection (for the Quaker Meeting House)  + refreshments

On the afternoon of the same day, Back Room Poets present a poetry workshop with Philip Gross:
Renga: When poetry grows in the spaces between us
The workshop will explore collaboration in poetry through linked verses in the spirit of haiku.

Friends Meeting House, 43 St Giles,
Oxford, OX1 3LW
