Katrina Naomi | Birds of a Feather | Penzance LitFest

An exciting debut poetry reading by the Penzance Stanza Poetry Group. ‘Birds of a Feather’ are the brightly-coloured – and mainly indigenous – members of the Penzance Stanza Poetry Group, who have been waiting patiently for the summer sunshine to spread their wings and fly. All winter long the Stanza poets have been busy scribbling, drafting and redrafting, exploring this year’s theme of ‘Taking Flight’. This will be the group’s very first public reading. Come along to see them soar and hear them sing. Headlining and leading the session (which will feature a collection of poets) will be international poet and Penzance resident Katrina Naomi. Katrina was the Chair of the Penzance Stanza Group until September 2017, and is still a member. Her collection, The Way the Crocodile Taught Me, was published by Seren in 2016. Spoken performances will be complemented by acoustic music from singer-songwriter David Rowland. Tickets: £4.00.
