Petition to save The Poetry Society
There is now a petition, addressed by myself, and signed by Carol Ann Duffy, Gillian Clarke, Liz Lochead and Jo Shapcott as the first four signatories. The link to the petition is here.
The website for following events through (the official Poetry Society is keeping its mouth shut but leaking money from every other orifice) is here. Do read the former Director, Judith Palmer's statement.
My previous posts on this are here and here. Please do read the comments.
Read also Jane Holland and Katy Evans-Bush here and here. Add Phil at the excellent Silkworms who has tracked the affair throughout.
Full live audio of EGM here, thanks to Martin Alexander.
And thanks for everything, Kate Clanchy. Now let's get this done. Please sign the petition. Anyone interested can sign.
