This weekend, we'll be in Nottingham at the wonderful independent Five Leaves Bookshop, to round off a great year of new poetry with four of our poets - come and join us!
Five Leaves Bookshop, 14a Long Row, Nottingham
In the final event in the Five Leaves Bookshop poetry series, join us to enjoy a fine selection of poets from Nine Arches Press:
Bobby Parker was born in 1982 and lives in Kidderminster, England. Publications include the critically acclaimed experimental books Ghost Town Music and Comberton, both published by The Knives Forks & Spoons Press. His poetry, artwork and photography have appeared in various reputable magazines in print and on-line and he writes a poetry column for The Quietus. His reading style has been described as “Gripping, weird, relatable but alienating, emotional, totally fantastic poetry.”- Café Writers. Blue Movie (Nine Arches Press) is his first full collection of poems.
Tony Williams grew up in Matlock in Derbyshire and now lives in Northumberland. His first collection The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh, Portico and Michael Murphy Prizes, and All the Rooms of Uncle’s Head was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice. He also writes prose fiction. The Midlands (Nine Arches Press, July 2014) is his second collection of poetry.
Matt Merritt is a poet and wildlife journalist from Leicester. His third collection, The Elephant Tests, is out now from Nine Arches, and previous publications include hydrodaktulopsychicharmonica (Nine Arches, 2010), Troy Town (Arrowhead, 2008), and Making The Most Of The Light (HappenStance, 2005).
