Thank you to everyone who has been in touch with comments about the Carlisle Poetry Symposium, yesterday. I was overwhelmed last night reading various responses. It is clear that a lot of people of seen the purpose and intent of the event. I thought I would include a few of the comments here.
“I must congratulate you on the Symposium – what a turn-out, so many standing! And I really enjoyed the afternoon – such an appreciative audience.”
“That was a great experience today – thank you! There was a rich and diverse range of poetry talent.”
“A terrific event. It was a lovely, warm and generous atmosphere to do a reading in and such a supportive audience.”
“What a great day of poetry… It’s a great event and a great website too to support it. A fantastic event for North western poetry.”
“People were very warm and welcoming, it was a beautiful experience.”
Many, many of the comments focus on the audience – which was you, of course. Thank you for coming, reading and listening. Especially if you had to sit on one of my picnic chairs.
