Longbarrow Press present
Digital Re-enchantment: Poetry Reading event
Date: Saturday 11th June
Time: 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Location: Old Hall Hotel, Buxton SK17 6BD
Longbarrow Press was founded by Andrew Hirst and Brian Lewis in 2005, and was launched in Sheffield in April 2006 (with the publication of Hirst and Lewis’s The Frome Sampler and Matthew Clegg’s Nobody Sonnets). Hirst stepped down later that year, leaving Lewis as sole publisher/editor. The ethos governing the output of the press is that the poem should dictate the format of publication. The resulting objects – matchboxes, acetates, maps – allow poet and publisher to explore alternatives to the book without resorting to gimmickry.
This evening poetry event will explore writing and its relationship to landscape in new and inspiring ways.
This event is following on from a day symposium in which the connection between technology, place writing and literature is considered. Tickets for this are £20 and available here: digital-reenchantment.eventbrite.com
