We are honoured to have published Elizabeth MacLennan's first collection of poetry, 'The Fish That Winked'. You can buy it directly from our on-line shop here.
Live Canon will be performing on 27th April at 5pm at The Lakeside Theatre to celebrate the visit of Derek Walcott, Nobel Laureate, to the University of Essex. It's a free event, but you need to book a ticket via the theatre here.
Our drop in workshop for young people at Eltham Library last weekend produced some fabulous poems. Visit our facebook page to see more...
The prize-giving ceremony for our 2012/2013 Children's Poetry Competition was a fabulous event; it was exciting and humbling to see so many brilliant young poets come together and to hear Live Canon perform their work. Copies of the prize anthology and CD are available from our on-line shop and all proceeds go towards our work with children and young people.
