Jane Monson - Tuesday 26th October

Our next event at The Punter features Jane Monson, who works as a freelance writer and teacher and runs independent creative writing courses in Cambridge, London and abroad. She has just released her debut collection Speaking Without Tongues.

'A sparkling, eye-opening debut' (Helen Ivory)

Jane has been short-listed for an Eric Gregory Award, commended by Poetry London and the New Writing Partnership and her poetry is widely anthologised and published in magazines such as The Liberal, Magma and Aesthetica. Jane was writer-in-residence at this year’s Cambridge Film Festival and editor of what Pascale Petit describes as a 'necessary and groundbreaking anthology': the Anthology of Contemporary British Prose Poetry.

'The richness and depth of Monson’s work, combined with the breadth of perceptive reading which is redolent on every page, makes it an important contribution to the development of the prose poem' (Luke Kennard)
