Called to the Edge


A more-than-full house with some standing, the poetry anthology ‘Called to the Edge’ was launched with champagne, and a feast of words spoken by each of the poets who read a selection of their poems.

The launch took place in Plymouth’s community cafe ‘The Clipper’, which is in Union Street, Plymouth. Lucy read on behalf of poet Abigail Robinson, one of the poet contributors to the anthology, who tragically passed away last winter solstice. Abigail was remembered with much love and appreciation.

The group look forward to bringing more of their work to live audiences in the near future, across the South West and beyond.
