Poetry Space launches long awaited collection by Bristol poet, Philip Lyons

Tuesday, 6 September 2011

Forty poetry lovers gathered at The Lansdown in Bristol to celebrate the launch of Like It Is by Philip Lyons.

One guest commented “It’s my kind of poetry and I feel I’ve been waiting for it for a long time – thank you for providing the gift of it at last.” Another wrote to Philip a day later: “Yesterday was special. Beautiful poems, beautifully read. And a lovely gathering in a perfect venue. I hope you’re still basking in the moment…” Philip himself called the night his “Oscar moment.”

Well done Phil. We are delighted to have you on board as a “Poetry Space Poet”. The book has already sold 38 copies. Thanks to The Lansdown for providing an outstanding service on a restricted budget.
