This evening LCA member Bill Fitzsimons will be hosting the first half of the evening on the theme of “The Ups and Downs of Love.”
Bill Fitzsimons is a Dublin-born Leeds based poet and a relative new-comer to the poetry scene, writing his first poems in his late 5o's. He is a founder member of Leeds-based Irish writer's group Lucht Focail (Word People) and has read at various venues in Leeds and elsewhere. He has also had work published in Aireings and Poetry Monthly; read on local radio, and been published in three group anthologies – The Fifth Province, Triple Spiral and Views from the Lighthouse. He also has a pamphlet published by Half Moon Press, based in Otley.
This will be followed by an open mic section in the second half of the evening on the same theme. Entrance £3.50/£3.00 includes refreshments.
