Back by popular demand, Malcolm Carson hosts the Poetry Breakfast again this year. Enjoy a coffee and croissant, or tea and toast (or whatever may be on the menu) in the Function Room of Tullie House, (away from the hustle and bustle of the café this year). Mingle with other poets and share your love of poetry. This will be a relaxed and informal opportunity for you to read one or two of your own poems (or short prose pieces). If you don’t write poetry yourself, just read a favourite poem. Malcolm will join in and read some of his poetry. There may be time to read more than one poem, so be prepared
