Launch of PRIMERS: VOLUME ONE

Maureen Cullen, Katie Griffiths, Lucy Ingrams and Geraldine Clarkson

Sunday 24th April 4:00 pm - 4:45pm

Tickets: £7

Wenlock Pottery, Old Chapel House, Sheinton Street, Much Wenlock, Shropshire, TF13 6HT,

 

In 2015, The Poetry School and Nine Arches Press ran a nationwide search to find exciting new voices in poetry, with selecting editor Kathryn Maris.

 

Primers: Volume One now collects together a taster of poems from each of the four new poets. The brilliant chemistry of their poems proves to be a heady mix and a memorable journey – from post-war correspondents to foster families, breath-taking natural landscapes to strange, unsettling dream-like narratives and so much more in between. There’s plenty here to delight and dazzle, and ample evidence of a bright future ahead for contemporary poetry, as these striking and bold new voices demonstrate.

The Poetry Parlour

A new event supported by Nine Arches Press, The Emma Press, West Midlands Readers' Network, Writing West Midlands and Waterstones Birmingham.

 

Thursday 19th May 2016 from 7-9pm

at Waterstones Birmingham, 24-26 High St, B4 7SL

With special guest poet: Julia Webb

 

Come into the Poetry Parlour and make yourselves at home! Join us for our inaugural evening of poetry with open-mic slots and our special guest poet Julia Webb.

 

Bird Sisters, Julia Webb’s first collection of poems (published by Nine Arches Press) is a surreal journey through sisterhood and the world of the family via the natural world. Fascinated by ‘otherness’, these poems are not always comfortable places to exist. Be prepared for poetry that witnesses transformations of some kind - a woman wears a dress of live bees or becomes a bird, family members turn into owls and sparrows...

 

Limited open mic slots will be available on a first-come, first -served basis.

 

TICKETS: £4.00 each. To book, please call: 0121 6334353
