Special Prose Poetry Event - Tuesday 24th January
Come and celebrate This Line is not for Turning: Anthology of Contemporary British Prose Poetry (Cinnamon, 2011) with readings by Robert Vas Dias, Andy Brown, Lucy Hamilton, Linda Black and David Gilbert.
This anthology of contemporary British Prose Poetry is the first of its kind in the UK. It celebrates prose poetry being written by writers such as George Szirtes, Pascale Petit, Carrie Etter, Luke Kennard, Andy Brown, Anthony Rudolf and Richard Gwyn, Linda Black and Kate North as well as new voices. The editor has chosen prose poems that have a distinctly unfussy, but refreshingly original way of using the form.
'This necessary and groundbreaking anthology is well overdue and will answer some questions poets are considering today about prose poetry, and raise many new ones.' Pascale Petit
