Live Encounters Poetry & Writing Volume One December 2020

Live Encounters is celebrating its eleventh anniversary. Eleven years have passed – years of peace, turmoil and toil. And there in the midst of it all, Live Encounters has created a quiet poetic swagger and its writers have laughed, wept and had a rich platform for their work. An anniversary is an opportunity to look forward and back over our shoulder at our own creative eleven as well as casting a learning eye on the work of others. Some writers and critics will outlive us – some won’t but the quiet colours of autumn and the legacy of LE certainly will. – Terry McDonagh, Founding Contributor of Live Encounters.
