‘Werewolf’ Launched

Werewolf set sail, supported by a large gathering of well-wishers, from The Tap and Barrel, Pontefract, yesterday evening. Steve Ely, in fine form after a 10-mile run, read several poems from his pamphlet as well as taking part in a discussion about his poetry generally, and about the theme of this collection, which he described in the following terms: ‘Violence and exploitation arise from the hierarchy and inequality of class society, where individuals and groups seek domination and advantage.’

Werewolf is £7, plus p&p if you’re not within cycling distance of Halifax. (The cyclist in question is ageing and not very fit at the moment.) Email caldervalleypoetry@yahoo.com for details.

John Foggin supported superbly with poems about wrens, goldcrests and Greek gods, including a selection from his Calder Valley Poetry publication Outlaws and Fallen Angels. (Also £7.)
