    A wondrous evening was spent captivating the essence of
    michael Donaghy’s philosophising poems and ironical wit.Wow, like Woodstock the poets came. And his lovely wife Maddy Paxman gave readings as a delightful teller of her published biography of her shared life with this poet.
    From Alan Murray’s insights and this workshop group ideas, from the voices in the evening crescendoing at Enfield Poets the praise was raised of Michael Donaghy. Not only both iinspiration and celebration but an education that will inform my poetry. An evening I will not forget!
