Poetry Ignites

Lily Blacksell, Mary Jean Chan and Patrick James Errington Chaired by Niall Munro

Sunday, 25 March 2018

12:00pm

1 hour

St Cross College

£7 - £12.50

Join Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre in celebrating the arrival of three fresh and exceptional international voices, Lily Blacksell, Mary Jean Chan, and Patrick James Errington.

ignitionpress is a new poetry pamphlet press that recognises and supports outstanding poets from across the world. Its first three poets, Blacksell, Chan, and Errington, will read from their debut pamphlets. Sometimes startling, sometimes meditative, but always beautifully crafted, these exciting new collections consider subjects as various as the prairies of Alberta in Canada, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and a clifftop gallop on the Isle of Wight. Having been shortlisted for or won major poetry prizes, including the Forward Prize, these writers are already establishing themselves as significant stars on the UK poetry scene.

The event is chaired by Dr Niall Munro, senior lecturer in American literature and director of the Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre and ignitionpress.

Presented by Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre.
