October 1st, 2020 – Guest Poet: Chrissy Banks

After the success of our first Zoom Poetry Evening we are delighted to invite Chrissy Banks to our next. (Please see joining details in panel on left.)

Chrissy lives and writes in Exeter. She previously worked as a psychodynamic counsellor and trainer. Her poems have been published widely in anthologies and journals.

Chrissy’s first pamphlet was ‘Watching the Home Movies’ (Odyssey) followed by ‘Days of Fire and Flood’ (original plus). Her latest collection, The Uninvited, came out last autumn from Indigo Dreams. (Signed copies of the book can be ordered post free directly from Chrissy at seaember@live.co.uk or through her website www.chrissybankspoetry.com, price £9.99)

She won second prize in the inaugural Wordsworth Trust Single Poem Competition in 2017 and has been longlisted in the Welsh Poetry Book Awards, prior to a final selection. A Poetry Business pamphlet, ‘Frank’, is due to be published in May of next year.
