The second Reading the River Poetry Reading was scheduled to take place at The Cottage Gallery at Brooklyn (10 Dangar Rd Brooklyn NSW 2083) on 28 March. The reading was to feature Irina Frolova, Chris Mansell, Les Wicks, Martin Langford, Tricia Dearborn and Richard Tipping. Like just about everything else we have been forced to postpone the reading. We will be looking to reschedule these readers for later in the year because, once we get through this, we will need to bring the poetry community together at every opportunity. In the meantime, however, we are looking at ways of bringing the work of these poets to you virtually – so please stay tuned.
The May reading is scheduled for Saturday 23 May and, at the moment features a number of interstate poets. Obviously we will need to review how things develop over the coming weeks before making a call on whether it will be able to go ahead.
Stay safe, read poetry and look after each other.
