Readings led by Annie Fisher and Frances Corkey Thompson.

THE POETRY CONNECTION: Frances Corkey Thompson and Annie Fisher have built a bond of friendship through poetry. In this event, they will discuss their respective influences and approaches, sharing pairs of poems which are linked in some way. Expect serious debate enlivened with humour!

Frances Corkey Thompson: Pleasure in Poetry 
Frances' poetry largely reflects her wanderings, real and imaginary. The child who grew up in Northern Ireland still toys in her brain with the responsible teacher, parent and grandparent. Frances shall be reading mainly from her third collection, Watching the Door, published by Sentinel Press, who kindly awarded her first prize in their competition.

Annie Fisher: Using Comedy with Serious Intent 
Reading and performing a varied selection of her poems, Annie Fisher hopes to entertain you by incorporating four of the elements she particularly relishes in poetry: levity, brevity, soul and song.

Saturday 30th July at 14:30-16:00
