Poetry Café

To La Langoustine Chris Emery is like the Godfather. We have been harassing him for ages to come and read with us, but he is so busy promoting all of us that he never has time. Therefore it is with great pleasure we announce a reading by the Notorious C.H.R.I.S himself!

Chris Emery was born in Manchester in 1963 and studied painting and printmaking in Leeds. He is Publishing Director of Salt in Cambridge, England. His work has appeared in numerous journals. His first full-length collection was Dr. Mephisto (Arc Publications, 2002), and his latest collection is Radio Nostalgia (Arc Publications, 2006). He is also the author or a bestselling writer's guide, 101 Ways to Make Poems Sell (Salt Publishing, 2006). He lives in Great Wilbraham with his wife, three children and various other animals.

Also appearing is Isobel Dixon, who was was born in Umtata, South Africa, grew up in the Karoo region and studied in Stellenbosch, and then in Edinburgh, before the world of publishing lured her to work in London. She now lives in Cambridge. Her poetry has been widely published in South Africa, where she won the Sanlam Prize and the Olive Schreiner Prize for her collection Weather Eye. Her poems have appeared in many anthologies, including several of the British Council New Writing volumes, and she read on the first Oxfam Life Lines CD.
