1 – Jo Bell, Chris McCabe and George Szirtes

Jo Bell

Jo Bell

Jo Bell – archaeologist, boat dweller and erstwhile Director of National Poetry Day – writes poetry which is lyrical, joyous, precise and clear as birdsong. Her new collection Kith interweaves questions of place, identity and community with the themes of love, sex, boats and friendship.

Chris McCabe reads from Speculatrix ‘exploring the sleepless metropolis by Jacobean torchlight’. (The Sunday Times).

George George Szirtes stepped in at short notice to complete the line-up.
