Dear WAPI members, colleagues and friends,
In order to protect our communities from the spread of Covid 19 we have suspended or cancelled the events we have programed for the next month.
(If you have booked a ticket for the Carolyn Abbs workshop, we will be in touch shortly to refund your ticket)
We are monitoring the situation as it develops and will continue to reassess this and update you on a regular basis.
In the meantime we are looking at other ways we can bring poetry to you and support poets in these extraordinary times. We will stay in touch via the newsletter, email and social media.
Please email us if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, and please keep writing. The world needs poetry now more than ever…
