There is an option to either pay via Eventbrite or to pay in cash on the door. If you are planning to pay on the door please still sign up so we know that you are planning to attend.

Ruth Valentine‘s If You Want Thunder brings to life the tragedies of the political world and the associated personal griefs. ‘Utterly contemporary, lucid and lyrical, this mature collection fizzes with invention’ Jacqueline Saphra. Selina Rodrigues‘ Ferocious, explores contemporary living and working. Online desires, migratory workers and the gig economy, the collection tells the stories of hidden workers. ‘A captivating debut from a unique voice’ Hannah Lowe. Anna Robinson‘s Whatsname Street is a history of one housing estate as told through its tenants’ narratives – weddings, washdays, street parties and seaside daytrips – and above all work, poverty and inequality. ‘Humour, praise and a stark beauty to these poems’ Malika Booker.
