A Handful of Water Launched

Last week saw the launch of A Handful of Water. Here are some pics for you: Jan of Cinnamon Press came all the way from North Wales


So many people came the poets had to stand at the door between two rooms.


Here is Dana Littlepage-Smith reading from The Skin of Mercy (between two rooms)


Here are some of our incredibly lovely audience, some of whom had to sit on the floor …


And  a really big Thank You to Dana for her beautiful poems and for being there on that wonderful evening…
