Next Penzance poetry parlour

Katrina’s next Penzance Poetry Parlour on 7 November 2019 will feature Annamaria Murphy and Mary J. Oliver.

Annamaria Murphy is a poet and writer. She is also well-known for her theatre and storytelling. She is a long-term member of Knee High Theatre (most recently as a writer). She also writes regularly for BBC Radio 4. Annamaria is also Artistic Director of The Story Republic and The Writer’s Block, part of Kernow Education Arts Partnership.

After a life in visual arts, Mary J. Oliver switched to writing. Her first book is a poetic memoir, Jim Neat: The Case of a Young Man Down on His Luck, (Seren, 2019), which in Mary’s words ‘reveals the secret life of my dad, a hobo in Canada during the 1930s’. The original manuscript was runner up in the New Welsh Writing Awards.

Entry is by minimum donation of £6. Doors open at 7 and the readings start at 7.30. There will be free cava and popcorn.

Poet-in Residence at the Leach Pottery

It’s been a great experience being the first poet-in-residence at the Leach Pottery in St Ives. With its strong Japanese connections, it’s enabled me to continue my exploration of all things Japanese after my recent writing trip to Japan.
