Last Friday the group launched its second anthology of poetry and prose at the Quaker Meeting House.

The event included readings by 13 of the 25 authors of the 132-page anthology, called ‘The Words’.

The event was also attended by Mayor Cllr Rosemary Farmer, who cut the cake and congratulated group chair Stephen Lloyd on what she called a “thriving group of creative poets and authors”.

The anthology is a companion piece to the group’s 2007 volume, The Works.
