The life and work of Poet and Editor, Josephine Austin, of International fame is being celebrated on Saturday 14th November 2015 at the White Rock Hotel, Hastings, TN34 1JU. There will be an afternoon and an evening session with a food and drinks break in between. Further details will be added to this website nearer to the date.

John Robinson, Poet and organizer (johndrobinson@yahoo.co.uk) is coordinating attendance at the event. Please contact him by email as above if you wish to attend and/or contribute to the reading or otherwise to the day.

The tribute will include poets reading some of the work produced over many years by Josephine and some of their own original work. The day will be attended by Josephine’s family. Josephine organised the Hastings International Poetry Festival for 38 years and it is hoped that there will be an opportunity for poets from the “festival group” to reconnect and reminisce.

A musical interlude finishing off the celebration of a life dedicated to promoting previously unknown but highly talented poets from all corners.

Her poetical spirit will be with us.
