Poetry Evening & Interview – with Ananda

It’s difficult to do Ananda justice in a few words for those who don’t know him.
He was ordained in 1967, the only person still in the Order of the original tranche. He is a poet, novelist, short story writer, editor, graphic artist & ex-sound engineer for the BBC who says that his ambition is to write more poems than Emily Dickinson (1775). So far he has written 1500.
Originally from Darwen in Lancashire, Ananda lived for many years in Bristol where, with Manjusvara, he founded Wolf at the Door, a Buddhist charity promoting writing as a means of engaging the imagination. They led workshops at Triratna centres all over Europe, Australia and America. He has recently moved to Sheffield where he is still writing and practising Buddhism.
But before and after everything, Ananda is a poet and we are extremely lucky that he has agreed to be interviewed and to read some of his work. He very rarely visits Norwich these days so please take this opportunity to come and hear him. You may not have this chance again.
