Anthology aims to showcase talents of Cornish poets
An anthology of work by poets living in Cornwall is to be launched during an evening of verse readings this week.
Murder Of Krows has been compiled by Duncan Yeates and Abigail Wyatt and features work by a number of local writers, including Abigail Wyatt, Kane Baker, Peter Jenkin, Janet McEwan, Chris Pease, Carole Ann Powell, Jane Ross, David Rowland, Una Taylor, Martin Wood and Jo Yeate.
The event, which includes free drinks and buffet, is at The Melting Pot cafe in Redruth this Wednesday from 7pm. Clay country poet, playwright and novelist Alan M Kent will be joined by fellow poet and Poetry Cornwall editor Les Merton to deliver a series of readings.
Duncan Yeates, who is organising the launch, said: "The appearance of these two talented writers promises to make the occasion both exciting and significant.

"The anthology itself is a selection of work by poets mostly from the Redruth area and gives an insight into the talents of a small group of writers who regularly get together to perform their work at The Melting Pot on Wednesday nights.
"Among those contributing are previously published and well-respected poet John Phillips and visual artist Janet McEwan, ensuring that this is a collection that really showcases what Cornwall has to offer.
"We intend the anthology to be the first of many promoting Cornwall's many published and unpublished writers."
Those attending the free event will have the chance to buy a copy of Murder Of Krows – each of which is numbered in a limited-edition print run – for just £1. The anthology will also be available after the launch from The Melting Pot Cafe in Redruth and Here & Now Gallery, Jam Records and The Cornish Store in Falmouth.
