The busy launch was featured work read by poets included in the journal. It was wonderful to hear John Foggin, Julie Hogg, and Will Daunt
We wanted to create a journal which was different to other poetry journals and magazines we admire and have subscribed to, and also wanted the journal to be a small piece of art in itself.
Coast to Coast to Coast will be launched at Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool on Thursday August 17th where contributors to the journal, including Katharine Towers, John Foggin, Julie Hogg, and Will Daunt will read from their work.
Coast to Coast to Coast, a hand stitched poetry journal with fabric cover will launch in Liverpool. The journal, which aims to be as much a piece of art as a poetry journal without the art or poetry being compromised came out of ideas I’d been working on with Michael during the time we were writing, reading and running some workshops in galleries on Merseyside.
On July 11th, it was my pleasure, at the invitation of Pauline Rowe, to read with Sean Hewitt to an attentive and interesting audience at Open Eye Gallery. Music was provided by Julia.
Reading at Open Eye Gallery alongside Seán Hewitt – part of a series of poetry and music events organised by the gallery and Pauline Rowe, in partnership with the University of Liverpool’s Centre for New and International Writing.
