Awaiting sunset on the coastal path between St Ives and Zennor.

@IAmPippaEvans Funny you should say that, Pippa. I've read about the mermaids of Zennor and was rather hoping one might show up.

Alan Bleakley, “Hook, Line, & Sinker”

March 11, 2017, 8:00pm - March 11, 2017, 10:00pm

Alan Bleakley will read from his new collection "Hook, Line, & Sinker” poems about Sennen & Gwenver. Alan Bleakley is Emeritus Professor at Plymouth University Peninsula School of Medicine, and an internationally recognised figure in the fields of medical education and medical humanities. He retired formally a couple of years ago, but continues to work with students from Exeter University medical school, to run conferences, and to write on medical education and medical humanities. He is currently on his 15th book, and has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. Alan was originally educated as a zoologist, then as a psychologist and psychotherapist. He worked for many years practicing and teaching psychotherapy. Throughout this academic career, he has kept two passions alive – surfing and poetry. Alan grew up in Newquay and started surfing in 1964 on his 15th birthday. His father ran a trawler and then shark fishing boats out of Newquay harbour while the family ran a hotel. At about the same time, he had his first poems published. For the past forty years, Alan and his wife Sue and family have lived in West Penwith and he has formed an intimate relationship with the landscape here, especially the coast around Sennen and Gwenver. His poetry developed through a mentorship with Peter Redgrove and he has published three collections and individual poems in a variety of journals such as the Times Literary Supplement, London Review of Books, and the Manhattan Review. His new collection, “Hook, Line, & Sinker” (Acts of Language) is a celebration of his local seascape (Sennen and Gwenver), revealing a darker side to these locations. There are poems about fish, fishing, seascapes, and the Penlee Lifeboat disaster.
