Poetry at the Creative Innovation Centre- Thurs 1st Oct Guest Poet Megan Beech

Continuing the 2015 season of poetry events, Fire River Poets are absolutely delighted welcome as guest poet for the reading on Thursday 1 October 2015 the acclaimed young poet, Megan Beech. Chairman of Fire River Poets, John Stuart, said ‘Megan is a home grown talent of Somerset and an amazing performer. It is great to have the opportunity to welcome her back home.’
 
Members of Fire River Poets will also be reading during the evening and, as John is always at pains to point out “We always provide a platform for poets of all ages and levels of experience, so there will as usual be an open mic session during the evening for any poet who would like to come along and read. Poets who would like to take advantage of this opportunity should apply through enquiry@fireriverpoets.org.uk.”
 
The Fire River Poets come together every first Thursday of each month at the CICCIC to read poems and listen to each others poetic insights to the world around them. Often there is a guest poet where you can hear incredible literary takes on their personal journeys and experiences.

Fire River Poets is a group of poets who meet frequently but irregularly to read and critique each other’s work with a view to supporting self-improvement. Several members have had poems published in various magazines, some have had collections published and a number have won prizes in competitions, but others are content not to seek any kind of public recognition and write purely for their own pleasure. Members write in whatever style they wish and the group has no ‘manifesto’ or platform. The group holds workshops, which include walking workshops (walks which are an inspiration to writing) and do public readings on request as well as organising their own events.
 
 
Events continue to be held at the Creative Innovation Centre, Memorial Hall, Paul Street, Taunton (http://www.creativeinnovationcentre.co.uk/how-to-find-us/).
