Poetry under the Skies

Thursday 9 September 2021

Join multi-award-winning poet, Jenny Mitchell, for an afternoon, in conjunction with Dulwich & District u3a, of uplifting poetry.


This event follows the launch with them in April of her second collection, Map of a Plantation.

The event will take place in the stunning gardens of Bell House, Dulwich, where Jenny will be joined by several other poets. The afternoon will be opened by Helen Hayes, MP for West Norwood and Dulwich. She has called the poems in Map of a Plantation ‘a powerful evocation… of voices silenced throughout history’.

There will be an open mic. First come, first served.

Jenny will be happy to take part in a Q&A after the readings.

Please bring a stool or portable chair.
