Write to the Elephant

To celebrate National Poetry Day on October 4th, NEON is putting on a special Elephantine poetry reading: Write to the Elephant. People are invited to write poems during their journeys towards Elephant & Castle and bring them to the event for readings, friendly discussion and networking.

To galvanize passing poets into action, various poetical methods are suggested, some of them newly devised for the occasion. The evening will be hosted by Paul Taylor, who will also offer a performance of trombone poetry, including music specially created for this event. Poems may also be submitted for publishing on the NEON Review site.

Write to the Elephant will be at 7:30pm on Thursday October 4th, upstairs at:
