Hallowell, Maine -- Next month the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell is delighted to welcome back English-poet-living-in-Wales, William Ayot for a poetry reading on Friday, September 13 at 7pm at the gallery, located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell. One year ago William's impromptu reading from his latest book, E-Mail From the Soul, entertained and moved a committed audience of die-hard poetry lovers at the Harlow. This year Ayot returns having won the UK's People's Book Prize, Special Achievement Award,for a book that is having an effect in the community in this case the community of leaders.

William's powerful and accessible poetry speaks directly to the heart as he charts an underworld journey through loss and alienation, to self-acceptance, reconciliation and a sense of belonging. A one-time student of indigenous shamans, William brings a grounded reality and a big heart to poems about the struggles and sacrifices of work, relationship and self-discovery about growing down as well as growing up!

If you have ever taken on the role of leader, led a group, or run a business If you are a manager, a therapist or an artist If you are into men's work, a person in recovery, or embarking on an inner journey' If you are down, depressed or simply yearning to come home, this is an evening you will not want to miss.   

William has published three collections of poetry and runs a world-class poetry series in Wales called On the Border. Having worked in rehab and prisons, led initiatory retreats, and worked for ten years, using poetry and story to teach leadership through Mythodrama (a new and experiential form of executive education) William set up NaCOT, the National Centre for the Oral Tradition, a dedicated home for the spoken word which is putting poetry and story to work across the UK. William still teaches in business schools and corporations around the world. He is currently teaching on the AMP (Advanced Management Programme) at INSEAD in France & Singapore, and was recently made Poet-in-Residence at Oxford University's Said Business School.
