Off the Shelf
October 21, 2015 § Leave a comment
I’m leading two events this weekend as part of Sheffield’s Off the Shelf Festival:
Spence Broughton – a savage tale for savage times.
A political reading of my sequence, reissued by Longbarrow Press this year, with Ray Hearne.
A carcass, tarred and put in iron,
cast up on a pole at the moor’s edge,
a message to all that pass.
Friday 23 October, 7.30pm, Walkley Community Centre. £4 on the door.
Bringing History Alive Through Poetry
A workshop to make poetry out of the ‘shadows, losses and silences’ of the past.
Part of a day of activity at Walkley Library called Be a Writer, See a Writer, Hear a Writer.
Saturday 24 October, 3 – 5pm, Walkley Library.
