LCA Poetry Evening with Peter White & Rosalind York and Half Moon books
May 20 @ 19:30 - 21:30£3.00 – £3.50
Half Moon Books, based in Otley, have encouraged and assisted dozens of local poets to get their work into print. This evening, two of Half Moon’s directors will be presenting their own work before inviting the audience to join in the fun with an open mic. In a former life as a design engineer, Peter R White used to write precise specifications and contract documents. Since retiring he gained a BA in Literature with the Open University, and was reborn as a writer of ambiguities and downright lies in the name of art. His poems have won prizes and have appeared in ten anthologies to date, and in his pamphlet, Ways to Wander (OWF Press, 2105). He is currently putting together a new collection.
Rosalind York’s work has won prizes in a number of competitions including the Guernsey International and been collected in anthologies by Other Poetry, OWF Press, Word Club with Transforming with Poetry, and the University of Huddersfield with Grist. Her pamphlet, The Flank of a Fish, was published by OWF Press in 2015 and her collection, The Taste of Red came out from Half Moon in 2020. Entrance £3.50/£3.00 members and concessions.
