I really enjoyed this original poem that Barrie has written in response to our last prompt ‘Green’.
She stood apart from all the others
Between the music and the wine,
The road behind littered with those
Who had misinterpreted her signs.
Oh yes you were the pretty one
You were every young man’s dream.
They were waiting patiently in line
For your signal to turn green.

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!
