Once again it’s come around: the stupendous Free Verse Poetry Book Fair, surely the Frieze of the poetry world (the interesting bit down at the end where all the cool small galleries gather). Held as ever at London’s most Corbynesque venue, Conway Hall, it’s the place to be on Saturday 26th September if you want to visit a bunch of fantastic poetry publishers, hear readings from their authors, mingle and gossip with a packed audience of fellow poets and poetry lovers – and probably bump into a few old friends.
And once again Hercules Editions will be there, with co-publishers Tamar Yoseloff and Vici MacDonald hosting Stand 25, which is just opposite the entrance (next to Rialto magazine). In addition, the evening jamboree – held at the Square Pig & Pen pub nearby – will at 8.30pm feature a reading by Hercules authors Hannah Lowe, Claire Crowther and Sue Rose. So come and pay us a visit at Stand 25, and stay around for the reading.
