NEW NORTH POETS
Current North West Squad member Elizabeth Gibson features in the New North Poets line up alongside their mentor Clare Pollard and special guest Caroline Bird.
The New North Poets are a group of talented poets from the North of England, selected for a New Writing North / Poetry School mentoring scheme with lead tutor Clare Pollard.
The reading also features Jasmine Chatfield, who didn’t come through the Squad but whom we supported to take Dead Lads, her theatre duo with Squad7 grad Lenni Sanders, to the Edinburgh Fringe. The other 2017/19 New North Poets are Michael Brown, Rosa Walling-Wefelmeyer and Maria Isakova-Bennett.
Clare Pollard is the editor of Modern Poetry in Translation. Her latest collection is Incarnation from Bloodaxe.
Caroline Bird has had five collections published with Carcanet. Her latest, In These Days of Prohibition, is shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize.
Tickets are free, but should be booked in advance. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the guest list!
