Words & Ears II

Come and join us at Bradford's poem-and-a-pint night.
It's free, and it's easy!

All performers and listeners welcome.

Karen Hoy and Alan Summers
Wednesday 17th November
7.30p.m. - 10p.m.

Georgian Wine Lodge, The Foyer, Bradford on Avon

You may have heard of haiku, but what about senryu, tanka, haibun or renga?

Widely published poets Karen Hoy and Alan Summers read from their work in these Japanese forms, negotiating nature, love, and humanity.

The Georgian Lodge is just two-three minutes from the train station, or the bus stop directly opposite the Georgian Lodge.

Yes, it's really as easy as that! ;-)

From the train station, walk towards the old Norman Bridge (with an old single prison cell) but stop before you walk across, and look over to your right.  You'll probably see us waving from the windows! ;-)

Thanks Alison! I only wish you could come over to this side of the pond. ;-)

Some day I will! I visited the UK in 1996 and I've wanted to go back ever since.

Alison, it would be really great to see you in person. Keep in touch! ;-)
