‘Lyrical: Open Mic & More’, Trowbridge, 7 March 2019

LyricalThursday, 7 March, 6.00-7.30 p.m. 

Trowbridge Town Hall Arts, Trowbridge, BA14 8EQ

​Diana Durham will be reading poetry by Jay Ramsay and people are welcome to come and read their own favourites by Jay and/or poems of their own. Optional theme for open mic: ‘Vision’.

Jay Ramsay was author of Monuments (Waterloo Press), Kingdom of the Edge (Element), and Pilgrimage (Awen), among many more, editor of six anthologies of poetry, including Diamond Cutters (Tayen Lane, co-edited with Andrew Harvey) and Soul of the Earth (Awen), as well as two prose books about alchemy and some classic Chinese translations. Jay passed away on 30 December 2018, and many in the poetry scene are still getting used to the idea that he is no longer with us, so influential was his presence and work.

The aim of Lyrical is to blend the open mic + guest poet format with conversation and also expand the slot to include talks, book launches, and workshops. Each evening will have a theme, announced beforehand, which poets are free to explore or ignore.
