Recent poetry events - Sandwell

Postcard poets at West Bromwich library

Busy month for Sandwell

In a flurry of activity before Poetry on Loan has a pause, Sandwell libraries had two events - Spoz providing poems on demand first, and then, in West Bromwich library, a live performance by four poets - Steve Pottinger, Emma Purshouse, Aliyah Begum and Tricia green (our last competition winner). A small audience thoroughly enjoyed the range of poetry styles - and the photo is probably the funniest Poetry on Loan has ever displayed. The poets assure me that they hadn't actually had a fight just before the event!
