SPECIAL GUEST: STEVE POTTINGER
"Steve Pottinger has gigged the length and breadth of the country, in pubs and clubs, at poetry nights and festivals. But that doesn't really tell you anything.
His influences are many and varied. Today he holds with Lenny Bruce's belief that the artist is influenced "by every waking moment", and Adrian Mitchell's maxim that "most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people". Tomorrow may be different.
He loves words, loves people more, and enjoys poetry which makes him smile, or think, or want to man the barricades. When not standing behind a microphone or in front of an audience, he can often be found down the pub. He hopes you enjoy his work."
"That Steve Pottinger has a strong poetic voice is never in doubt, but that he infuses his work on the page with a warm, thoughtful sensibility may be a pleasant surprise to those who have only seen his electrifying stage performances. Beneath the easy technical ability with language, breadth of life experience, charm and humour, is a compassionate and observant writer fully engaged in the human struggle. Steve’s poetry is a valuable thing and something you’ll want to return to again and again."
