JIM BENNETT RESTROSPECTIVE 2018
Jim Bennett has been writing and performing poetry for over 50 years, and has won many awards including 3 DADA Fest awards 9 times nominated for a Pushcart Award, Shortlisted for the Bunting Award, and winning and shortlisted in many competitions. He has also performed his poetry for members of the Royal Family, appearing on TV and Radio and at theatres, open floor events, festivals and civic events. He has toured Universities, colleges, schools and libraries giving readings and talking about poetry. He is also the person who has continued to build on the work of the late Ted Slade in promoting and developing The Poetry Kit which is an online resourse for all poets. While all this was going on his poetry was published in collections, large and small, many long since out of print and unavailable.
As part of a retrospective on Jim's work we will be collecting many of the no longer available items and republishing them through Kindle editions. Those available so far are shown below.
