First Sentinel Poetry Live Event

It was a commando style affair. Organised in just 6 days, attacked by tube emergencies and roadworks outside the venue that many several of guest not get there, but in the end it turned out to be a fantastic and memorable evening. Pictures forthcoming courtesy of Molara Wood and Obemata.

The evening started with two poems by Molara Wood, then followed by two poems by Nnorom Azuonye, and then Obemata read his new work "My Country, My Homeland". Poet and novelist Toni Kan visiting from Nigeria also read three poems from one of his poetry collections, ending with a love poem that brought Azuonye back up to read one love poem before Esiaba Irobi finally took to the stage reading powerful pieces powerfully from his latest collection "Why I Don't Like Philip Larkin & Other Poems"

The Sentinel Poetry Live events will now take place on the first Saturday of every month at the Waterloo Gallery, 14 Baylis Road, London SE1 7AA
