Here's another local poet - Marva Jackson Lord - who has just brought out a book of poetry. Poems for Landscapes: Prelude is available from Marva's website, https://marva-jacksonlord-xvmj.squarespace.com/ for £6.50 plus p&p. The launch party was held at Tomatitos, where Marva organises a monthly poetry session (which I never seem to have time to get down to, which is a pity. The couple of times I've made it have been really good).
She will also be appearing during the How the Light Gets in Festival at the Globe, on Wednesday 1st June and Thursday 2nd June, with the guitarist Justin Preece.
