Dawn Gorman believes poetry should be everywhere - puts it on beermats,
uses it to
work with people with memory loss, facilitates writing workshops, organises poetry
events and runs international poetry competitions. She is widely published, and has
performed in New York, Paris, London - and lots of smaller places in between.
“Poetry isn't a profession, it's a way of life. It's an empty basket;
you put your life into it and make something out of that.” Mary Oliver
Guest Poet: Crysse Morrison
Crysse Morrison is an ex-Londoner now living in Frome. She has written fiction, plays and articles, but enjoys the challenge of poetry and performs at venues around the south west. As a self-styled crone, her mission is to give voice and visibility to the wrinklie generation. Her collection Crumbs from a Spinning World is published by Burning Eye Books, and she runs the Frome Poetry Cafe.
