Today's Poet and Exhibition News
The Exhibition of Female War Poets, Inspirational Women of WW1 and Fascinating Facts of the Great War was officially launched on Thursday, 15th August 2013 at the Ace Centre in Nelson, Lancashire.
The Exhibition will be on until 3rd September 2013 so there's plenty of time to get along to Nelson and have a look and let me know what you think. Here is the write up from last week's Nelson Leader newspaper.
Carmela was also on hand early on Thursday morning to help with the finishing touches (of which there are always some, no matter how well you think you have prepared). Carmela also made some very useful comments and helpful suggestions. I know who I would like to have as my Right Hand Person!
Thank you to Andrew Stephenson, Pendle MP, who came along, read every panel, left a lovely comment in the comments book and also tweeted about the Exhibition. Thank you so much Andrew.
Thank you to the Kirkup Family who came along to support us - we are hoping to have some entries for the Pendle War Poetry Competition from you! www.pendlewarpoetry.com
And thank you to everyone else who came - I was rather overcome with emotion as I have put so much into this project so forgive me if I have not mentioned you by name.
Finally, thank you to Beverly, Paul, Sean, Nigel, Philip and Carmela at the wonderful Ace Centre in Nelson. If you have never visited the Ace Centre, please try to get there - it is amazing!
