Uncut Poets with Caroline Carver at 19.30 on 27th October at Exeter Phoenix
Now the dust has settled on another exhilarating Exeter Poetry Festival, we’re back in Uncut Poets action with the ever-popular Caroline Carver as guest poet. Since her last reading with us, Caroline has been poet-in-residence with the Marine Institute, Plymouth University, an enviable appointment that resulted in her 2015 publication ‘Fish Eaters’ (University of Plymouth). Her latest, a pamphlet just out from Indigo Dreams, is ‘Ju Ju Baby’, an insightful and inventive treatment of myth, issues of personal growth and our place in the natural world.
The evening will as usual be mediated/moderated/jollied along by Liz Adams and Alasdair Paterson, and there are 10 open mic slots. These can be booked by contacting Alasdair here on Facebook, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07783 734523. Any of last month’s open mic reserves who came along but were not called on will have priority, but should contact Alasdair anyway to confirm.
It’s likely that we’ll be back in the Phoenix Workshop, though a late transfer upstairs to the Top Studio is not impossible. Start time 7.30pm, admission £5 (£3 open mic and concessions).
