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:
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!).
