My church is holding an Arts Celebration Day this afternoon. It’s mainly devoted to visual arts, and also craftwork, but I decided to contribute some poetry this year. I’ve hand-written four of my poems onto card, signed them, and mounted them in wooden frames. I wonder if any of them will sell! I’m also selling copies of my chapbook at a discount (only £2). I’ll let you all know how it goes, even if I sell none.
***Report: Rather amazingly, all ten of the chapbooks I left on the stall sold! In addition, two of the framed poems sold. Maybe community arts festivals are the way to go...***
