Launch of Issue 1 of Coast to Coast to Coast journal August 17th 2017

Issue 1 of Coast to Coast to Coast journal was launched at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool on Thursday August 17th 2017. The busy launch featured work read by poets included in the journal.  It was wonderful to hear John Foggin, Julie Hogg, and Will Daunt read their published poems and some of their own work.

It was also wonderful to hear work by all poets unable to attend the event, but published in issue 1:

Jane Wheeler                          
Abegail Morley                      
Isabel Bermudez                                
Duncan Chambers                  
Katrina Naomi                                              
Mandy Macdonald    
Natalie Shaw              
Andy Humphrey
and Katharine Towers (who was sadly held up in traffic but will read for us during the launch of issue 2 or 3).

It was wonderful to launch in such beautiful surroundings, with music by Julia Rowe, kind words from Poet-in-Residence, Pauline Rowe, and in the presence of such an appreciative audience (note how they follow the poems in their journals!).
