We meet on the last Tuesday of the month in Stalybridge Station Buffet Bar, 7.00 to 9.30 p.m.
The launch of Write the Cathedral went well. Magnificent surroundings, fantastic poetry. In June Maureen will read at a UN dinner in New York as part of "We Care for Humanity". In May Rachel Davies will read with Carol Ann Duffy and Friends at the Exchange Theatre in Manchester.
Some of our Stanza members will be reading at Northwich Literature Festival on 4th June at Cafe Terrazzo, starting at 7.30pm. These include Edwin Stockdale, Jan Dean, Angela Topping and Tonia Bevins, who this year won second prize in the Cheshire Prize for Literature run by Chester University. The anthology of that competition will be launched in July and includes other Stanza members. A new programme is planned starting in September and I am currently searching for a suitable venue.
