poems/performances

 

This year Ian has already performed at the Church Times Festival of Faith & Literature in Bloxham and at the Church Times Festival of Poetry in Salisbury. This from the Church Times review:

Ian Adams, a tutor at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, began the programme on Sunday morning with a poetic meditation. Gentle, conversational, he read from his collection of poems and haiku. His message: “Nurture a resilient inner life, the effects of which may ripple into the world.” His work seldom strayed from the natural world:

I was trying to read the river
But the river read me, asking
“How will you live your mayfly life?”

More poetry performances will be coming up in 2018

Listen to Ian’s performance at the North Cornwall Book Festival

“I loved @pacebene’s #poetry event tonight. I found it really healing. It’s amazing what words can do and the spirit they can communicate…”

 

UNFURLING: POEMS

Ian’s latest collection of poems Unfurling is out now on Canterbury Press, also via your local bookshop, and all usual online sources including Amazon and Book Depository  with free delivery world-wide.

“These are sensual poems, elemental poems, poems of the landscape, poems of the ordinary”

    Hi Ian

    I loved your reading at Sarum – and am equally enjoying reading Unfurlings! We chatted after the session and you said you might send me the poem you read on the Swing. If that were possible that would be great. Many thanks – Caroline
