October 25 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us on Zoom for readings of their poetry by four Quaker poets, responding to the climate crisis, introduced by Jennifer Kavanagh.
- Ella Otomewo is a poet who found her voice in the spoken word community years ago, and now writes for both the page and the stage. She lives in Manchester.
- Philip Gross is mostly a poet, for adults and young people, a former academic and a keen collaborator across art forms. He won the T. S. Eliot Prize, 2009. His home is in South Wales.
- Sam Donaldson writes poetry, runs spiritual retreats and has been active on a range of peace, humanitarian and environmental issues. He’s based in Humberside.
- Stevie Krayer is a poet whose publications include three collections of poetry and an anthology (co-edited with R V Bailey) of Quaker poets. Brought up in London’s East End, she has lived in Wales for nearly 30 years.
Jennifer Kavanagh worked in publishing for many years and has written a number of fiction and non-fiction books herself.
