Poet and artist

Stone’s Throw is making a splash!

Leave a comment

A collaboration between Colchester’s Poetry Society Stanza Group, Mosaic, and local artists, resulted in a book called Stone’s Throw. The project was co-ordinated and organised by Sheena Clover, Mosaic’s chair, and I had the pleasure of designing and putting the book together. The book contains the work of nineteen partnerships – a poet and an artist were paired up and each responded to the other’s work resulting in a rich and varied selection of poems and artworks. It was launched as part of Essex Book Festival on Saturday 11th March at Colchester’s Minories art gallery to a packed room, together with an exhibition of the poems and artworks. The exhibition continues until Sunday 19th March and is well worth a visit.
