If you are in London on Friday October 4th, then it would be lovely to see you at the launch of the Camden Poetry Series anthology A Scream of Many Colours when Somewhere Else member Iris Anne Lewis will be one of the contributors reading their work.
Song for the Yazidi Women was originally published on the I am not a Silent Poet website and can be read here. Iris submitted the poem for the anthology back in December 2017. A few months later she heard the poem was accepted and the anthology was finally published this year.
The Camden Poetry Series is part of Camden and Lumen Poetry, a London poetry project in support of cold weather shelters. In A Scream of Many Colours poets were asked to respond to some of the violence and disasters that confront us when we switch on the radio or television. Published by Poetry Space, the Camden launch of the anthology will feature readings from several contributors.
Proceeds from the evening goes towards cold weather shelters for the homeless and profits from the sale of the anthology will be donated to Médecins san Frontières.
The event includes an Open Mic and will take place at Trinity United Reform Church, 1 Buck St, Camden Town (1-2 mins. Camden Town tube.) 7.00 p.m. (doors open 6.30 p.m.) Entrance £5/£4 concession.
