And there we were, in force. More came to see the end of Expressions than I have ever seen before. The celebrations lasted from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., a truly mammoth reading, a fitting end to twenty years of poetry. The Expressions Final Flourish Anthology was launched and well received. It is available for download now, and print copies from Mr Expressions himself, Spirit Thom
