Very sadly, last night was my last appearance at Poets' Cafe in Reading for a few years. I will much miss the guest poets, fantastic open mic participants and charismatic mc, AF Harrold. It's acknowledged as the best open mic around for longevity, warmth of welcome and quality by local poets and visitors alike, one of whom said he'd never seen so many people at an open mic reading from their books.
If you can get to Reading on the third Friday of the month, find your way to South Street Arts Centre
http://www.readingarts.com/southstreet/ and sign up to read.
Thanks everyone for the kind send off and letting me break the one poem rule. I will miss you all.
