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: Stephen Elves
Elves' poems and reviews have appeared in Magma, Acumen, Orbis, Envoi, South Bank Poetry and Connections and he was a runner-up in the Yorkshire Open Poetry Competition 2010 and in the Torriano competition 2008.
