Last night we celebrated the release of our first art anthology filled with work produced or performed at Morocco Bound: poetry, prose, photography, collage and sketches from our open mic nights, creative writing workshops, art clubs and jazz nights.
We had readings from 13 poets, some of the 30 contributors whose work is included.
Behind the scenes, even more MBers were involved in the project. One was recruited to help carry the 150 copies over from the printer's. Another was the printer. A third spotted us struggling with the boxes and proffered a lift in her car back to the shop. Beep beep.
The three of us began this project because we compelled to bring together and celebrate the talent that we see and hear on a weekly basis at our events. We are consistently amazed by people's self-expression, vulnerability and above all how supportive they are of each other. It's truly a privilege to be part of the unique and lovely little community that's formed around Morocco Bound.
