Once again there is another evening of poetry next Wednesday 3rd May at 7:00 at Offside Books, 92 Willesden Lane.
The organiser Brian Lee tells us
The theme for the first part of the evening is Poetry of Resistance. This does not necessarily mean political resistance, it also means the poetry that helps you to stay strong, to connect with your inner strength in order to get through difficult times. So please bring poems on this theme that you would like to share.
Then the rest of the evening will be open for your own poetry Or just come and listen. We need listeners too!
As before, the charge for entrance will be £3. Tea or coffee will be served.
