Openings 36 the annual anthology of the Open University Poets has been published!
Openings 36 is the latest edition of the Society’s annual anthology. During the year approximately 500 poems were submitted to the workshop magazines. In January members had the opportunity to vote for their favourites). Thanks to the efforts of members, Sue Spiers (editor) and Alice Harrison (collator), 36 of these poems were published in the anthology and sent to members in July.
As one might expect in an anthology, the poems explore a wide range of subjects. This year the Society’s poets tackled subjects as varied as the life of Will Gaines, a potting shed, World War I, manhood, a grey cardigan, the Greenham Common protest, dementia, racism and the story behind an iconic painting.
The anthology is free to members. For those wishing to buy a copy see below for details.
