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: Sue Boyle
Sue Boyle and Miranda Pender will be bringing a special production of Sue's Victorian love story The Letters from Mexico, which has already staged as a theatre production in Taunton and launched with artwork by Jude Wisdom at the Teignmouth Festival of Poetry. Slides based on the works of Frederick Lord Leighton and Henri 'Le Douanier Rousseau' and a new edition of The Letters created for this occasion will complete the show.
