Dreaming the real poetry night - with friends and special guests from around the country Friday 7.00-9.00pm 17 February - a fundraiser for the Croydon Buddhist Centre (CBC)

15 poets from all over the country will be reading for your enjoyment. Warm up the cold February evening by coming and supporting these varied poets at different stages of exploration in their writing journeys.

The night will be headed by Satyadaka and Annabeth Glittermouse Orton.

Since placing first in the Kingston Young Poets award in 1989, Glittermouse has continued to entertain and delight with her ability to hold a myriad of weighty topics in lightness and ease. Her broad and lyrical use of language is as comfortable to skip along to at a rhythmic pace as it is to flow into free verse. She lives in the community at the Buddhist women’s retreat centre, Taraloka.

Satyadaka was involved at the CBC for 12 years (1984 - 1996). Besides writing poetry and an autobiography (‘Everything That Arises’) he has been translating German poetry (into English). Since 1996 he’s lived and worked in Norwich and been closely involved with the Norwich Buddhist Centre. He’s also involved in ‘Wolf At The Door’ writing workshops and retreats.
