History

Committee Members

We use the term ‘Committee Members’ very loosely because Poetry Live hasn’t always had a formal committee like it does now. Many times, it has been run by a variety of people each volunteering to do what they can to contribute, be it MCing events, editing publications, creating posters or booking guests. More rarely, there have been periods where one person did everything for a time – such as in the beginning when David Mitchell first started the event and later when Rosemary Menzies took it on. For many people, we know only that they were involved, but not when or for how long.

We hope to gather a more complete list of members along with details of each person’s involvement. If you have ever been part of the running of Poetry Live or have information about this, please contact us at poetrylive@gmail.com.
