MANCHESTER: Free Poetry Event

Wednesday, December 3rd 2008, 7pm, FREE
The Other Room
The Old Abbey Inn,
61 Pencroft Way,

Tony Trehy, Scott Thurston and Carol Watts

Scott Thurston's most recent book is Hold (Shearsman, 2006). He lectures in English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Salford and has published on Allen Fisher, Adrian Clarke, John Wilkinson, Maggie O’Sullivan, Ulli Freer, Ira Lightman, Geraldine Monk and Tony Lopez. He edits The Radiator, a little magazine of poetry and poetics, and recently edited The Salt Companion to Geraldine Monk. See his pages at Archive of the Now. A new sequence of ninety poems called Momentum, is out now with Shearsman.

Tony Trehy is an international curator and writer and Director of the Text Festival. Publications include Text, Vertigo, 50 Heads and Reykjavik. Ron Silliman writes: "A techno descendant of someone like Prynne, a concept that strikes me as very odd indeed. And a sign that Trehy isn’t really like anyone else at all. Trehy is an eminently readable poet, though you have to pay attention as you proceed through each work."

Carol Watts lives in London. She is the author of Wrack (Reality Street Editions, 2007), brass, running (Equipage, 2006), and alphabetise, a book of prose chronicles exhibited in the Text Festival at the Museum of Art, Bury, Manchester in 2005, now an eBook (Intercapillary Editions). She teaches at Birkbeck, University of London, where she co-directs the Centre for Poetics.
