HALESWORTH: Poetry at The Cut

Friday, March 13, 2009, 7.30pm, £7 (£3.50 under 18s)
The Cut,

Poetry reading and writing workshop with Ann Sansom and Peter Sansom, the legendary team from Sheffield’s The Poetry Business.

Join Ann and Peter for a reading guaranteed to improve anyone’s mood! Both are utterly genuine and engaging writers and performers, and their marvellously human poems work beautifully both on the page and stage.

Ann Sansom has published six collections, has written and directed plays for stage and radio, and is currently working on a series of film-related poems with the British Film Institute. Her poems celebrate the lives of ordinary people – stoics with the courage to laugh in the face of adversity.

Peter Sansom was previously poet-in-residence at Marks and Spencer and The Prudential, and has had poems commissioned by The Guardian, BBC Radio 3 and The Big Breakfast. He relishes colloquial language and everyday experiences, making art out of darts and banquets out of butties!

The following day (Saturday March 14th, 10.30am – 4pm), at the Hopper Room, The Cut, Halesworth, there's a Poetry Business Writing Day. It's a unique chance to experience Ann and Peter’s skills as inspirational and highly experienced tutors – “the best poetry teachers in the world”, according to The Guardian. Come and benefit from their brilliant repertoire of exercises and write your most surprising, truthful and rewarding poems. Tickets are £45, including lunch. Maximum 16 places available.
