Maltese Poets Association meet poet and artist Stephen Morris

Thursday, 2nd October, at 7 p.m., was another successful poetry evening for the Maltese Poets Association. The venue chosen was the Razzett tal-Markiz Mallia Tabone, Mosta, Malta, and this thanks to the Mosta Philantropic and Talent Association and President Joe Bartolo.
MPA's Secretary, Charles Magro, led the evening, while President, Alfred Massa, gave his habitual discourse to those present. Special guest was poet and artist, Stephen Morris, from England (see: Vice-President, Patrick Sammut, introduced Morris by reading a short biography. Later, Sammut also interviewed Morris and asked him about the themes he writes about and the poetic forms he uses.

Members of the MPA had more than a chance to read their poetry in both Maltese and English. Stephen Morris read and even acted some of his verse, discussing love, religion and politics.
Those present had the opportunity to see some of the Holocaust paintings of Morris and some examples of visual-poetry, directly from some of his past publications.
Stephen Morris expressed his satisfaction with the way he was greeted by the MPA members, attendance and venue chosen.
Stephen Morris will be meeting sixth form students from De La Salle College next Monday, 6th October, 7 p.m. Those interested are invited to attend.
