The final Yes We Cant of the year is almost upon us, and what a night it’s going to be! We always aim to bring the best in UK poetry to our events, and we’re delighted that Jane Burn – whose work is consistently placed in poetry competitions, who has been nominated for both the Pushcart and Forward prizes, and whose collection ‘Be Feared’ is now out on Nine Arches Press – will be our headline poet. She may even bring her ukulele. We’re also decidedly chuffed that Rick Sanders (aka Willis the Poet) will be beaming his whimsical goodness down the Internet from Dudley to be our ‘Alf Ender, and that we’ll have ten open-mic poets (there’s just one spot left at the time of writing) completing this cavalcade of poetry!
Jane will also be running an online poetry workshop for PPP that afternoon (Sunday December 5th) on the theme of mythology and fairy tale. It will run from 2-4pm, will have a maximum of 14 participants, and will cost £10 per person (payable in advance). We still have a few places left on this, so if you’d like one, get in touch sharpish! In order to make this workshop as accessible as possible, PPP will cover the cost of two places for folk on low incomes. If you need one of those, let us know when you apply.
