We give readings that celebrate our varieties of approach, language and voice.
Our programmes play on contrasts and similarities.
Our poems cover personal history, relationships, story-telling, myth, humour and the surreal.
Elizabeth died on 20th August 2015 after a long illness.
She will be missed so much by her family and her many many friends, as well as by writing groups to which she belonged or which she ran, by her students and mentees, by her readers - and of course by Sixfold.
AUDIENCES SAY :
“the theme was a real force of unity that gave the programme a shaped quality, with impetus and flow, community and diversity”
“resonances and chiming between the poems enabled all sorts of subtle connections to gather in the mind”
“there was an enchanting coherence to the reading; attention didn't lapse for a moment”
“evocative; a special atmosphere: a lovely evening”
Our current programmes are on the themes of:
Love them or hate them, we all have them – near or distant, known or unknown. Poems about our fathers, being fathers, and father-figures bring together disparate emotions in one powerful evening. (Particularly suitable for Fathers' Day!)
Performances last approximately 45 minutes
