The Gab Of The GiftApril 10, 2021
ollowing March 2020’s Poets Wall, Frances Browner and The Whale theatre have teamed up once again.
Having put the shout-out in April for a Greystones Poetry Trail, the response was immediate, and immense.
As the great big list of above proves.
The idea is simple – poems of any shape and size, by people of any age (or size), all gathered in one town, catching people by surprise in shop windows, the train station, the library, bakeries, butchers and beyond.
“We were really taken aback by the response,” says Frances (who published her own collection of poems, Roots And Wings, in 2019), “not only by the number of works submitted but when we had our online launch, over 60 people joined in.
“Which, when it comes to online launches, is pretty amazing…”
And as it happens, quite a few of the poems are pretty amazing too. You can catch them when out and about, in not only Greystones but Delgany and beyond – with more, Frances assures us, to be added.
And fair dues to The Whale for sponsoring the event, with a little help from our nemesis, Greystones 2020.
