Slants Of Light—Readings And Photos



In the company of  the Paragram Poetry Prize Competition organiser, Sally Blackmore, poets and guests, we had a wonderful time at the Poetry Cafe (Poetry Place) in Betterton Street, Central London on Friday. It was the launch of the ‘Slants of Light Anthology’ with readings. Snug and warm inside, there was even time for an open mic slot as the wind whipped up litter and threw masonry from roofs.

Here are some photos with a copy of the first poem you hear me read on the audio file (well, hopefully, if we can upload it!) The other two poems on the audio are Hobgoblin Trees and Latent, they can be found here and here.

The photos and audio were recorded on a mobile phone. I think the quality is surprisingly OK and my thanks go to Angie for recording and photographing on the evening 🙂

  1. Sounds like a wonderful night, and you look terrific! I’m on my phone and didn’t see an audio file but will check back later. 🙂


  2. Hi Polly! I nominated you for The Dragon’s Loyalty Award, as I chose blogs I have just been newly discovering to receive the award! You have a lot of wonderful posts, wish I had time to give you the rules, but if you check out my list of nominees, I also have who nominated me. He has the Dragon clip art and the rules, if you should choose to accept this award! Smiles, Robin
