Poetry Live! Presents: Judith McNeil and Glevie
This is Poetry Live’s 40th Anniversary Year
As part of this year we are featuring as guest poets some of Poetry Live’s past MCs.
Guest Poet: Judith McNeil
Judith McNeil started writing poetry 40 years ago and hasn’t stopped since. With others she set up four-by-two publishing in 1995 to publish Tongue In Your Ear, an anthology of poets who read live. Ten years later, after volume 9, Judith decided it was time to publish some of her own work, including After 1984, All My Shirts and Going East: a journey with my mother. She had believed that reading her poems aloud was publishing enough but it was also gratifying to see her work in books. She will read from these books and some of her more recent poems inspired by her life in the country.
Guest Musos: Glevie
Glen and Yvie have always had a love affair with music. Yvie has been singing since before she could talk and Glen has been playing music for most of his life. After meeting seven years ago, they found common ground with their favourite music and have been playing together ever since.
