Siren Book Launch

What if we can't save the Earth? But if the Earth could save us. I'm excited to be part of this moving and powerful event, where Liv Torc, one of the four Siren Poets launches this bumper new poetry anthology, with live performance from many of the forty poets featured in the book. We all joined Liv in a creative quest to uncover lessons the Earth sent us during lockdown. She says "The aim was to unearth poetry on the tip of the tongue of the world by looking at signs and metaphors in nature... we like to think that this book is by the Earth. We just took time to listen." Having really enjoyed being a participant in both this project and Liv's original haiflu project during lockdown, I can guarantee that this book will be uplifting and eye-opening in equal measure. I'm just one of a group of poets who are really grateful for the time they've spent with Liv, as she continues her generous and life-affirming work - almost exclusively on Zoom - since our world of performance poetry has been turned inside out and upside down. Do join us if you can - everyone who buys a ticket will get a copy of this amazing book in the post. Here's the link https://www.eventbrite.c.uk/e/125651389689

Bring flowers on this winter night

where all the garden sleeps

                                beneath its leaves

I ache for the sweet of petal...
