Calling All Poets


I have received a most unusual request.

There is to be a conference on Values-Based Medicine at Warwick next month. The organisers have asked me to find two student poets who would be willing to offer a poetry reading as part of an after-dinner celebration for this event.

The date of the dinner is Monday the 23rd April and it would probably be around 9 pm/ish that the student poets would be required.

What would you have to do? Each student would read/perform a mixture of their own work as well as poems they like (& which perhaps but not necessarily touch on a medical/health theme!) for 8-10 minutes. The poets will be then followed in the programme by an orchestra…

What would you get in return? You would get a free sumptuous dinner; free wine; you would get good practice at reading to an audience; and you would be paid £25 each for – at most – ten minutes of work.

You would also have to be available to do this on that date. The dinner begins at 8.00 pm.

If you are interested e-mail me this week please. First come, first served (in this case the serving will actually be real food).
