This year, The British Council supported a performance poet- Francesca Beard.
Her poetry was diverse. The poem that I felt made the most impression was The poem that was really a list. It is quite a tough poem so don't open the link if you are feeling fragile.
Thanks to the Book Lounge for organizing such a wonderful event. It's wonderful that it boosts networking through the book illustrator and 'poems to go' sessions.
Another poet came to my attention this week and that was the "Emergency Poet", Deborah Alma. She drives around the UK in an ambulance administering poemcetamols from the Cold Comfort Pharmacy.

Have you ever felt the need for an emergency prescription of poetry?
