The Emergency Poet to open UK’s first poetry pharmacy!
What lovely news! Friend to the Hounds, Deborah Alma aka The Emergency Poet, is to open UK’s first poetry pharmacy!
Deborah has spent the last 6 years travelling the length and breadth of the country in her vintage ambulance prescribing a variety of lyrical lozenges, melodic medicine & poetic plasters!
The folk of Knaresborough certainly found her to be just what the doctor ordered when she attended RtH Festival in 2013 and again in 2014.
An old Edwardian ironmongers shop at Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire is where The Emergency Poet is now setting up a permanent residency.
It sounds utterly fabulous and we can’t wait to see how it turns out!
