The 8th October 2015 is National Poetry Day and to celebrate Learning Services are organising a very special event….!








We were keen to mark National Poetry Day and wanted to celebrate it with an event that was interactive, fun, lighthearted and something that students could really engage with. One of our library staff, Dee McMahon, came across The Emergency Poet and we knew it was exactly what we were looking for.

We are incredibly excited to welcome The Emergency Poet, Deborah Alma, to the University.  Deborah is ‘the world’s first and only mobile poetic first aid service’. She travels round the country offering consultations inside her retro ambulance and prescribing poems as cures.

The Emergency Poet will be at the Ormskirk campus on Thursday 8th October from 10.30am to 3.30pm.  So if you have something on your mind please do come along and give this alternative remedy a try!
