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: Richard Skinner
Skinner's poems have been published in various magazines and his full-length collection, the light user scheme, is published by Smokestack. He is director of the Fiction Programme at Faber Academy.
