Draw Breath: Poetry on a Summer Evening

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

‘Draw Breath’ by Quaker poet Geoffrey Weeden describes the experience of a Quaker meeting for worship, and was the inspiration for the Geoffrey Weeden Poetry Prize, held in 2023. Geoffrey Weeden was part of a vibrant tradition of Quaker poets, including U.A. Fanthorpe, Philip Gross, and Basil Bunting.

On Thursday 13th June, prize winners will be reading their entries at Kingston Quaker Centre. The readings will be followed by the launch of new poetry collections by Noel King, winner of the first prize for adults, and his fellow Irish poet, Louis Mulcahy.
