Dear poetry lovers,

4th November mini book fest organised by Palewell Press has moved from Dulwich Library to Peckham Library – details below. The same timings apply, 1.30-4pm, £5 admission plus free glass of wine. The move has been caused by lift problems at Dulwich, making the room inaccessible for some disabled people.

I will still be reading from my new collection, The Ghost of Franz Kafka. Several other Palewell authors are also reading.

Hope to see you there,

Regards,

Patric

The reading takes place in the pub’s upstairs function room.

We look forward to welcoming you,

Poems Not Bombs
Dear poetry lovers,
I’m reading at this free event in London on Monday 5th December. Please come along if you can make it – the evening includes open mic spots and wine available for a donation.
Most of you know that the Poetry Cafe is closed for renovation until next year which explains why Dodo Modern Poets has not been running an autumn season. We’ll be in touch once things are up and running again.
Regards, Patric Cunnane

ALL ABOUT DODO ALL ABOUT DODOALL ABOUT DODO ALL ABOUT DODO ALL ABOUT DODO

DODO MODERN POETS
Dodo Modern Poets was founded in 1986 by Patric Cunnane with the intention of bringing new and established poets to as wide an audience as possible and especially to venues off the beaten track

The name Dodo Modern Poets is an ironic tribute to Penguin Modern Poets, a now extinct series of anthologies featuring new poetry which were published in the sixties and seventies. Like the dodo, poetry is always in danger of extinction but somehow rises again to challenge the values of modern society

The group hosts a regular evening at the Poetry Café; in Covent Garden where it presents the most vibrant, entertaining and challenging poets writing today.

DMP has appeared at the Edinburgh Festival, the St Ives Literature Festival, the Hastings Festival and many others including a number of Dylan Thomas inspired evenings in Laugharne, South Wales for which it received funding from the Welsh Arts Council. Other London shows included several appearances at the Wimbledon Studio Theatre and at the Croydon Clocktower arts centre. The group has also appeared in Dublin

Its founder Patric Cunnane is involved in many other poetry activities, he ran a day school on performance poetry in the New Forest. He has created poetry with elderly people and disabled people in day care centres in the London Borough of Merton. He ran school workshops in the same borough as part of the Big Arts project for several years and a poetry workshop at Merton’s arts festival for adults with learning difficulties

Patric Cunnane’s poems have appeared in many publications including The Guardian and have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4. His latest collection, Looking for Eden, was published in 2012
