Many of Michael Brett’s poems were written during the War in the former Yugoslavia when he worked as a volunteer in the Press Section of the Information Centre of Bosnia-Herzegovina in London. His forthcoming book, Tomorrow It Will All Run Backwards, has been highly praised by Mario Petrucci, Poet-in-Residence at the Imperial War Museum. His work is widely known on the internet and in anthologies, including those edited by Carol-Ann Duffy and Andrew Motion. In 2014, the Wilfred Owen Association included his poem ‘Every Dead Baby is a Baby Croation’ in their anthology, and the State University of San Diego included ‘War Intelligence’ in Poetry International.

We start at 7.30 p.m. with Poets from the Floor, and end by 10 p.m. with a break for refreshments and socialising.
Admission £3.50, Concessions £2.50.

    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!
