Mark Hinchliffe Launch

On Thursday 19th May, 7.30 pm, at The Albert Hotel, Huddersfield. And what a wonderful evening it was. Back room at The Albert packed with poets and Mark’s family and friends.

Let Steve Ely speak for those present:  ‘A superb evening – Mark’s reading was sensitive, gentle, decisive and well-judged – as are his poems – honest and genuinely moving. Powerful readings from Carola and  Stephanie Bowgett. One of the best poetry events I’ve attended in recent years. Take a bow Bob Horne for the good work you’re doing with Calder Valley Poetry.’ Steve, thanks for that endorsement, and thanks to the 40+ people who were there for a memorable occasion.

Anyone wanting a copy of ‘The Raven and the Laughing Head’ or any other publications of Calder Valley Poetry, go to ‘Bookshop’ on this website.

    Pity I couldn’t be there – I’ve known Mark Hinchliffe since we were undergraduates at Birmingham University in the 70s. We were all scribblers, but Mark was and is the only talented one. I’m so happy that he’s starting to gain the recognition that he deserves.
