Join us for the launch of a new poetry collection by Colin Poole, ‘The Point is to Change It’. Colin will be in conversation with local poet and playwright Wendy Miller and will perform poems from the collection. Colin Poole uses his poetry to promote understanding between cultures and as a tool to fight injustice wherever he sees it. His poetry collection Versus Verses The Bourgeoisie was described ‘as rapid fire rhymes combined with brilliant imagery which never miss the target.’ We can’t wait to hear new and old poetry favourites from his most recent offering. Plus guest speakers on some of the topics! You’re really in for a treat.
This collection was brought to you with the support of the Unite Glasgow and West of Scotland Not for Profit Branch.
