" The Morden Tower is quite simply the best poetry reading space I have ever experienced. I first came across it when I was a student, and in the early seventies I helped organise some of the readings. It was an unforgettable experience for me, and provided an opportunity to listen seriously to a wide range of writers: I'm still assimilating the lessons. I did my first serious public reading there- nobody could ask more than that in the way of luck "
