One Response to Shelley Tracey – Belfast, Northern Ireland 2014

  1. Shelley Tracey says:

    100 Thousand Poets for Change was a great success in Belfast on Thursday 25th September. The bookshop/cafe Bookfinders was packed with poets and audience. The readings took place by candle-light, with a great spirit of commitment and camaraderie. Over 25 well-known poets and first-time readers contributed. Watch this space for some recordings. Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise” was also performed, to great applause.
