Three of the most exciting and original voices working on the British poetry scene today come together to read some of their verse.

Claire Trévien is an Anglo-Breton poet, editor, reviewer, workshop leader and live literature producer. She is the author of the pamphlet Low-Tide Lottery and of The Shipwrecked House, which was longlisted in the Guardian First Book Award. She edits Sabotage Reviewss, and in November 2013, she was the Poetry School’s first digital poet-in-residence. Her second collection, Astéronymes, is published in March.

Harry Man won the 2014 Struga Poetry Evenings UNESCO Bridges of Struga Award and his pamphlet, Lift, was shortlisted for best pamphlet in the 2014 Saboteur Awards. He has collaborated on a number of projects, including with the dancer and choreographer Jennifer Essex on a production for the London College of Fashion, with Kirsten Irving for Auld Enemies, curated by S J Fowler, and with illustrator Sophie Gainsley on Finders Keepers, which examines Britain’s disappearing wildlife.

Sarah Hesketh obtained an MA in creative writing from UEA. Her first full collection of poetry, Napoleon’s Travelling Bookshelf, was highly commended in the Forward Prize 2010. In 2013 she was poet-in-residence with Age Concern, working with elderly people with dementia, and in 2014 she published The Hard Word Box, a collection of poems and interviews inspired by this experience. In 2015, she was commissioned by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust to produce Grains of Light, a sequence of poems based around the story of Holocaust survivor Eve Kugler.

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

Presented by Oxford Brookes University Poetry Centre, Department of English and Modern Languages.
