Rack Press poets launched in style

Nicholas Murray, and fellow poets Ian Pople, Ian Parks and
Susan Grindley at Lumen in Bloomsbury
The four new Rack Press poets of 2013, Susan Grindley, Rosalind Hudis, Ian Parks and Ian Pople read last night at Lumen in Bloomsbury from their new pamphlets.  All four read to a large and responsive audience in this very attractive venue and demonstrated that this year's quartet are particularly rich and enjoyable. You can order them by using the Paypal drop-down menu here and there are still some sets of the special offer of all four pamphlets signed by their authors and numbered, all for £15 the set instead of £20.
