The webmaster is still recovering from her post-StAnza poetry hangover, sorry! Full March entry to go up within the next few days. If you’d like to mark your diaries, here are the dates for the final Shore Poets events of the season (all poets subject to change – well, poets do need to change or we stagnate – YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN – but this is what we’re pretty sure of schedule-wise):
