I was happy to receive my complimentary copy of the spring edition of The Reader, containing my poem, Resuscitation.
The Reader is the magazine of The Reader Organisation, a dynamic Liverpool-based charity dedicated to reading in the community. They boast an impressive list of partners, including the NHS and the criminal justice system, various schools and community groups and charities working with the elderly. Get into Reading groups are the mainstay of their work, where trained facilitators lead groups in reading aloud and responding to poems or texts together.
This morning The Reader Organisation is busy tweeting about it’s 4th annual conference on Thursday 16th May 2013 at The British Library in London. As it states on their website, this will explore how their pioneering shared reading project, Get into Reading, addresses the need for social inclusion, meaningful activity, and better health in communities across the UK.
