As with most years I have some involvement with the Essex Poetry Festival. Apart from my reading at Hadleigh library my own Littoral Press will be featured at the Festival's main event in the Cramphorn Theatre at Chelmsford on the afternoon of the 13th of October. The Littoral Press will have 1 hour and 15 mintues on stage and our programme will include readings by the Littoral Press poets: Adrian Green, Maggie Freeman, Derek Adams, Jennie Carr and not forgetting yours truly - Mervyn Linford.
