I'm a bit late with this, but just to add to whats already been said....The standard in this poetry book is great. It really reflects the diversity of styles and approaches to the idea of Breathing Spaces that this project has incorporated, allowing many voices to be heard. The event at Longsight Library was so enjoyable - with people doing their usual business at the library, from homework to job searches, pausing to listen to our poets. We welcomed some new visitors and most of the participants read their work aloud - daunting at the best of times. Congratulations to everyone. I encourage everyone to buy a book - or borrow from the library!
