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: Frances-Anne King
King won second prize in the 2010 Frogmore Papers Poetry Competition and was short listed for the Cinnamon Poetry Prize. Her poetry has been published in Agenda, Acumen, Envoi, The Rialto, Poetry Wales, Poetry Ireland Review, and Poetry Salzburg Review.
