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: Things We Should Have Said
A return to Words & Ears of the wonderful, 'spontaneous poetry exchange', Things We Should Have Said, conceived by Stuart Silver and featuring a 'team' of poets performing their work in response to each other, in an unrehearsed, impromptu and mesmerising way, as we discovered when they visited us in June 2019. The line-up of poets is different each time, and we will announce who we have in store for you this month closer to the event. In June 2019, the performance was "spellbinding, moving from the funny to the chilling and back again with a sense of disarming honesty and humanity... a breath of fresh air." Can't wait for their return.
