MERYL RAW (article first published : 2005-02-7)

The main mission of The Live Poets’ Society (LiPS) is to nurture the writing and appreciation of poetry. In the group’s nearly 10 years of existence, it boasts several notable successes.

The latest is Meryl Raw. After joining LiPS less than a year ago, she will launch her debut collection Footprints at the next meeting. Her poems reflect the environment of Kokstad where she lives, blending rural earthiness with pastoral spirituality.

The publisher Graham Lancaster of Alexander House and Trayberry Press will also attend. He will be pleased to meet budding poets who aspire to their own collections being published.

In the wake of one of the world’s worst natural disasters in recorded history, the evening’s theme is Apocalypse. Those with poems which could be linked to that topic, however remotely, are invited to present them. As usual the evening will wind up with a Poet Pourri session when anyone may air their work on any subject.

The gathering takes place at 17h30 on February 9 at Adams Books Coffee Shop in Durban’s Musgrave Centre. There is no charge and all are welcome, regardless of whether or not they write poetry. As there is limited seating, latecomers are advised to bring a folding chair or cushion.

More details from Brett Beiles on 031 266 4762 or 082 516 0517.
