It's passed like no time at all, and like an infinity. This zoom reading with in-words of Greenwich will reflect on it, grieve for it, flee from it, keep trying to survive it. Joining friends in poetry world on zoom has been at times hard work this year, but always a lifeline. I hope many of my poetry reading and writing friends will be there.
A year of lockdowns, tiers, brief respites, losses and resilience – and yet it’s flown, thanks partly to Zoom and the internet in general. We’ve all become more adept at technology, baking, entertaining ourselves and making do, maybe even at realising what’s not essential and can be let go of…
With so many uncertainties about dates, loosening of restrictions etc, it’s good to have a definite date for something as lovely as this… One Year On is definitely going ahead, featuring Rosie Johnston, Alex Josephy, Colin Pink, Jacqueline Saphra and Rob Walton. They will be offering their takes on these last weird twelve months in verse and prose (Rosie).
There will be plenty of smiles and some sadness, nostalgia for ‘before’, anger and questions. Expect to hear words that, at some point, we have all said or thought – but crafted in ways unique to these fabulous wordsmiths.
This event is free by invitation. If you wish to be sent a Zoom link, please email
