Event description

Description

Join us for an Exploring Poetry sessions, where you can read and discuss contemporary
poetry in a friendly environment. Exploring Poetry is for anyone who wants to find out more about contemporary poetry, how to read it and which poets to look out for.
The Exploring Poetry leaders, Anna Woodford and Linda France, will work with you to share ideas about what
works and how poetry makes you feel. You should come away with an idea of which contemporary poets you might
enjoy and ideas of what to read next. The sessions are relaxed and informal, and no knowledge of poetry is required

After the workshop Antony Dunn will be sharing and discussing the poems from his new book Take this one to bed.

Antony Dunn was born in London in 1973, and now lives in Leeds. He won the Newdigate Prize in 1995 and received an Eric Gregory Award in 2000. In 2015, he was the editor of Ex Libris, a volume of selected poems by David Hughes. He has published three previous collections of poems, Pilots and Navigators, Flying Fish and Bugs. Take this One to Bed explores the passions and tensions of how we live together.
