Mon 1 January 0001 - Mon 21 March 2022
On this World Poetry Day, come and celebrate the shortest poetry form – the diamond-like Japanese haiku – with the launch of the second poetry collection by writer and musician Marc Zeuk Roberts.
Company of Words is proud to present the wordsmith and wunderkind, who will read from his new book, Ghost of Clone, published by Infinity Books UK.
Marc will share poems that invite you to ‘Look within and wander the meadows of the mind or the streets of urban wyrdness, with their oblique signposts to a non ordinary version of reality…’
There will be games, there will be guests. You are invited to share a single haiku of your own in our ‘haiku-mic’. A winner will be chosen and they will receive a tome in return…
But, on this day, it isn’t about competition – it’s about coming together to celebrate the wonder of words.
Come join us, and enjoy…!
This event comes courtesy of CoW and IBUK’s new collaboration, and is kindly supported by Chapter Arts Centre.
