Book store in hunt for top poets

To celebrate World Poetry Day on Thursday, Belfast's Waterstones is giving poets the chance to perform their work at a special event in the Fountain Street branch from 6.30pm.

The event will be hosted by Waterstones' poet-in-residence Michael Conaghan who will present a prize on the night, a £25 book token, for the best poem.

If you would like to read, e-mail your name and the title of your poem to enquiries@ belfast-fountain.waterstones.com, and mark it for the attention of Michael or Fi.

Poetry lovers are also being encouraged to come along and just listen.
