Ar­ran po­ets go coastal at sea themed event

The Arran Banner - - News -

Ar­ran Po­etry, whose verse has been de­scribed as mel­liflu­ous in re­cent years, is host­ing a po­etry read­ing next week in a con­tin­u­ing of their se­ries of off-piste Not Na­tional Po­etry Day, Po­etry Days.

This year the Ar­ran Po­etry fo­rum has joined with Com­mu­nity Of Ar­ran Se­abed Trust (COAST) to de­liver an evening of themed po­etry and mu­sic in the Brod­ick Bar on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 6 at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.

The theme will be The Sea, or any­thing re­lated to the sea. Or­gan­iser Cicely Gill said: ‘It will not sur­prise you to know that we are join­ing with COAST for this event.

‘Since COAST is about hon­our­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing the sea in all its as­pects, we thought it would be in­ter­est­ing to ex­plore how po­ets have re­lated to and en­gaged with it – are they on the same wave-length? – so we are hop­ing that you will bring us your favourite po­ems on this sub­ject or one you have writ­ten your­self’.

A se­lec­tion of 10 read­ers have al­ready been in­vited to share and read ei­ther their own po­ems or po­ems by other writ­ers. Mu­sic will be pro­vided by one of Ar­ran’s own vo­cal en­sem­bles, Vi­vace, fresh from their stint in Ar­ran Ac­tive last week in sup­port of the SSPCA.

New read­ers are al­ways wel­come and can still reg­is­ter in­ter­est to read by phon­ing Cicely on 700464. This is a ma­jor out­ing of Ar­ran Po­etry and is de­scribed by the or­gan­is­ers as an event not to be missed.
