Launch of Coast to Coast to Coast’s latest publications:

Coast to Coast to Coast is a limited edition hand-stitched poetry journal first launched at Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool in August 2017. Each cover of the journal is unique and stitched by Maria Isakova Bennett, a poet and artist from Liverpool. Over the first two years Maria has created fourteen publications including a Litany featuring 48 poets in a collaborative project. She has hand-stitched over 750 covers. Coast to Coast to Coast has travelled across the UK with events, special launches, and projects at Belfast Book Festival and Poetry in Aldeburgh.

This event will feature readings from one of the winners of Coast to Coast to Coast’s second Individual Poet Journal Competition, Isabel Bermudez (with her journal, Madonna Moon). Excerpts will also be read from the second winner’s work, Painting the Stones Back by Lydia Harris. Lydia is from Westray and her work evokes notes from the island.

The extra-large Summer Issue also contains poems from the shortlisted poets: Mara Adamitz Scrupe, Pam Thompson, Finola Scott, Susannah Violette. There will be music, refreshments, and a limited number of the featured journals for sale.
