Salt Margins

Whitechapel Gallery, 80-82 Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX
20 September 2007.
Doors at 7pm, first act at 8pm

Featuring poetry from Eleanor Rees, Melanie Challenger and Chris McCabe and music from Songdog.


Poets Eleanor Rees (Andraste's Hair) and Melanie Challenger (Galatea) have both been nominated for this year's Forward Prize for Best First Collection, confirming the fast-growing reputation of Salt Publishing. Like Eleanor, Chris McCabe is a Salt poet and a Liverpudlian. His collection The Hutton Inquiry is a powerful examination of language under pressure. Musical refreshment is provided by Songdog, led by playwright Lyndon Morgan, in another strong lineup from Salt Margins.
