Events update

Just a quick catch up on things forthcoming – as always the best way to stay fully in touch with Ouse Muse and poetry in Bedford is by signing up to our mailing list here and joining the facebook group here.

March 21st is World Poetry Day and Ouse Muse at Harpurs, 8pm to celebrate! Ouse Muse for April is the 18th and will be a special joint session with the Circus of Illustration’s ‘Drink and Draw’. May 16th is the Ouse Muse after that , but May 22nd will be another spoken word performance night as part of New Write Nights II at The Place – including some members of Ouse Muse and some from further afield. Another special event coming up will be a workshop with Anne Berkeley on 6th June – great in itself, but also an excuse to gather those interested in forming a regular Bedford poetry workshop group for the future. The workshop will cost £7.50 full price, £5.0 students/concessions, although future workshops will (hopefully) be cheaper as many of them will be led for free by local poets.

At a personal level I’ll be reading at the launch of Long Poem Magazine on 15th May (in the Barbican Library in London) and we’re also planning some events for National Poetry Day on 3rd October…..while I hope that my collection ‘Intermittent Beings’ will be out around then.

If you are planning any poetry events in or near Bedford let me know and I will add them to our list.
