4 March, 7.30 pm: Puzzle Poets Live in Sowerby Bridge


Freda Davis, Gaia Holmes and Sean Bamforth of Puzzle Hall Poets kindly invited me to be a guest poet on 4 March, 7.30, in Puzzle Hall Inn, Sowerby Bridge (details below). Here is a bit of history of the Puzzle Poets.

Freda very kindly said she liked my performance at Magic Words. I looked up Freda’s poems on Write Out Loud – and was delighted to find lively and lovely poetry, filled to the brim with Northern tongue-in-cheek and place names. Freda also makes this amazing pagan Moon Calendar.

I met Gaia Holmes at Calderdale‘s Writers’ Roadshow, at a workshop on writing poems about family. She has a beautiful name, and as I found out from our conversation, when her parents were giving it to her, the name was not so popular or infused with the sacred meaning, as now.

This is what they have got to say about me: Oxana Poberejnaia at the Puzzle Hall.

This is what they say about themselves: “Puzzle Hall Poets meet on the First Monday of the month at a little pub by the river called the Puzzle Hall Inn. We have been meeting there for the last 15 years or so.

Our format is to have one guest poet who gives us 20-30 minutes, then after a break we have an open mic which is usually very popular with 7 to 10 poets reading a very mixed bag of work.

We all get an enthusiastic encouraging welcome from the audience so why not give it a go? Very friendly atmosphere. Good quality beers and wines; over 14 as event is in the pub”
