8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
8pm – 9pm, Zoom, £5
Kim Addonizio is known as one of America’s ‘most provocative and edgy poets’. Her poetry, as seen in Wild Nights (Bloodaxe) is renowned both for its gritty, street-wise narrators and for a wicked sense of wit. With passion, precision and irreverent honesty, her poems explore life’s dual nature: good and evil, light and dark, joy and suffering.
Platinum Blonde is Phoebe Stuckes’ debut collection and we are delighted to celebrate a former Ledbury Poetry Festival Young Poet in Residence. Each poem presents an episode in the up-and-down life of the wise-cracking party girl. On the surface, this is a world of dancefloors and glitter, but beneath these are poems about self-belief, self-image, vulnerability and insecurity, loneliness, trauma and survival.
