4 Corners Festival are “excited to be launching our very first publication “- Building A City of Grace; Poems From 4 Corners Festival – February 2020.
On the first morning of the 2020 Festival, Six Form students from all over Belfast were part of a poetry workshop, trying to envision a better Belfast.
The poems the Sixth Formers wrote last week will be published this week alongside poems by John Hewitt, Damian Gorman, Linda Molloy and Beano Niblock who contributed a lot to this year’s Festival.
Also included will be the poems by members of the Committee, David Campton and Jim Deeds read at the Broadcast Service on Sunday morning on BBC Radio Ulster as well as the Rev Steve Stockman’s own poem that he quoted in the prayer during that Service.
There are a few others too.
The Launch of the book will be on Saturday afternoon (Feb 8th 2020) at 3pm in St Bartholomew’s Church on the Stranmillis Road. This is at the end of the Wonderful Wander which starts at the Dock Cafe in Titanic Quarter at 1pm. You do not need to be at the Wander to be at the launch!
The book is also available at Shanway Press –
