White Ink Stains: poetry reading (October 2016)

On 19 October 2016 we welcomed over 60 friends and poetry-lovers to the launch of the most surprising outcome of our project – a series of stunning poems, inspired by Sheffield readers, from Eleanor Brown, the award-winning Bloodaxe poet.  They are a unique and highly persuasive way of honouring readers’ experiences.  We thank the Off the Shelf Festival for their generous sponsorship and Sheffield Libraries for their hospitality.

Here are some of Eleanor’s poems.
