Join us for a fascinating conversation between poets, featuring Rosie Garland, a renowned performer, whose debut collection, What Girls Do in the Dark invites us to leap into outer-space, inner space and through strange night-time transformations.
Novelist, poet and singer with post-punk band The March Violets, Rosie Garland has a passion for language nurtured by public libraries. Her work has appeared in Under the Radar, The North, Spelk, Rialto, Mslexia & elsewhere. Latest novel The Night Brother is described by The Times as “a delight: playful and exuberant… with shades of Angela Carter.” In 2019 she was selected by Val McDermid as one of the 10 most compelling LGBTQI+ writers working in the UK
Tania Hershman’s poetry pamphlet, How High Did She Fly, was joint winner of Live Canon’s 2019 Poetry Pamphlet Competition and was published in Nov 2019, and her hybrid particle-physics-inspired book ‘and what if we were all allowed to disappear’ was published by Guillemot Press in March 2020. Tania is also the author of a poetry collection, Terms and Conditions (Nine Arches Press, 2017). www.taniahershman.com
