Don’t forget – its National Poetry Day on October 3rd so look out for events in your area. Locally, Retford Library are holding an event on the day from 2pm which includes a talk on the poetry of Philip Larkin by local enthusiast Rob White, followed by a poetry cafe.

Yes, it’s time to put on make-up, it’s time to light the lights*… The official launch of our anthology is just a few hours away, so we’re all busy rehearsing and preparing. I do hope you’ll be able to join us for this celebration of the talented Retford Writers. The launch will take place in Retford Library, at 6:00 p.m. this evening (9th May 2019). The writers will be reading excerpts from some of their contributions, and there will be a chance to chat, buy copies of the book, and enjoy some celebratory drinks and nibbles. Do come along, and of course, if you are an aspiring Retford Writer join our group and maybe your piece will be published in the next anthology!
