Poetry on Loan is not run by a committee. Our meetings include representatives from each library authority in the West Midlands region - everyone is involved, from the huge Birmingham Libraries to tiny Telford and Wrekin.
Roles and responsibilities
Some people do have particular roles and responsibilities:
Chair: Mirka Duxberry
Shropshire Libraries. Mirka has been involved in Poetry on Loan since 2008.
Treasurer: Anne-Marie Dossett
Herefordshire Libraries. Anne-Marie has been one of the driving forces behind PoL for several years.
Co-ordinator: Brenda Read-Brown
Brenda is a poet herself, but spent many years as a project manager.
Brenda was at one time the Herefordshire PoL representative, and has been PoL co-ordinator since 2008.
