There are two launch events for SOUTH 65
An in-person event was held in Reading on Saturday May 14th. It was a lovely late spring afternoon, and the hall was large and airy. This was our first in-person launch since Covid and lockdown and around 20 contributors, supporters and management team members met to enjoy hearing poets reading their work. As usual there was an eclectic mix of topics - from dancing cranes in snowy Japan to an ode to a pacemaker.
It was really good to be able to mingle and chat once again. The general feeling was that a Saturday afternoon worked well; we look forward to another in-person launch in October.
However we are continuing with Zoom launches for the time being for those who cannot manage to attend in person.
A Zoom event will be held on Wednesday 18th May. We are opening the space at 7.15pm ready for a formal start at 7.30pm.
There will be a short break around half-way through and the event should end well before 10.00pm.
