On Wednesday 13th October, Wolverhampton poetry collective Poets, Prattlers, and Pandemonialists will present another edition of their poetry event Home & Away. For those who don’t know, this is a game of two halves, each of 45 minutes, featuring two teams of poets.
Wednesday’s event will be online, and will be the final ‘home nations’ event, with a visiting team of poets from Wales (teams from Scotland and Northern Ireland have already taken part). The Welsh team is a trio of very talented poets: Dominic Williams, Mark Lyndon, and Lottie Williams. They’ll share their work in the second half, while the first half will feature the three members of PPP with the considerable talents of Ann Atkins, Anne Babbs, and George Bastow in support.
This event will be pay-as-you-feel, with contributions going to pay the poets from Wales. To join the audience, just send PPP an email. They’ll send out the Zoom link on the morning of the event.
