A quick update to let you in on some good news about the Lunar Poetry Podcast. The Podcast has received some funding from Arts Council England in order to extend its reach and improve its quality. David Turner and his team have already managed to bring you podcasts from Sweden, Turkey, Cuba, Nigeria and all over the UK – with this funding they will be able to get out of London more often and record interviews and performances they would previously have been unable to. They will also be able to set up a dedicated website from which all past and future podcasts will be downloadable.
This all takes a bit of setting up, so things will be a little quiet on the podcast front until the beginning of September, when there will be a new 12 month programme of guest hosts and episodes from around the country.
That said, if you do happen to be in London on Sunday 24th July, you will be able to see a live Lunar Poetry Podcast being recorded as part of the Betsey Trotwood Poetry All-Dayer between 3 and 4pm, featuring readings from LPP regulars.
Keep up with what’s going on in the meantime by following @Silent_Tongue on Twitter.
Also, while I’m here, a quick reminder that the Issue 11 Launch will be at the Peckham Pelican from 7.30pm on Tuesday 2nd August. More details shortly.
