Thursday 29th November at The Museum in the Park:
Stroud Poets 12 and a celebration of the first 12 volumes in the series.
7.30 for 8pm

Stroud Poets 12 James Holliday, Jola Malin, Peter Munro
with Mark Huband and Rowan Middleton

The first series of Stroud Poets pamphlets concludes with Number 12.
James Holliday and Jola Malin write about family:
James uses his five poems to tell an extraordinary story;
Jola Malin has found solace in creating work which is rich with imagery, frank with emotion.

They will be joined by Peter Munro who lives and works in the Aleutian islands.
They are as far from Stroud as it is possible to get, while on the same line of latitude.

Mark Huband will have a new pamphlet:
his poems combine a freshness of vision and language with the experience of a foreign correspondent.

Rowan Middleton’s new pamphlet recasts English pastoral poetry
for a 21st century
where the countryside and the natural world are under threat.

The new pamphlets will be on sale. 7.30 for 8. Free entry.
