Uncut Poets with Ian Royce Chamberlain and Jenny Hamlett at 19.30 on 26th October 2017 at Exeter Phoenix
October’s Uncut Poets in the Phoenix Workshop welcomes as guests two local luminaries who have new publications to share. Ian Royce Chamberlain’s work explores our times and landscapes with a thoughtful affability, a care for nature and an eye for the absurdities of later life; his intriguingly titled “Vertigo and beeswax’ is published by Oversteps.
Jenny Hamlett’s ‘Playing Alice’ is her second collection from Indigo Dreams; Jenny’s vision and language are always clear and compelling, and warmed by a sympathetic engagement with landscapes and people, dreams and losses.
Since Alasdair Paterson has reached a birthday of biblical proportions and is being taken on a variety of mystery trips by family and friends (hopefully none of them one-way) the evening will be compered by two mystery presenters. They will be superintending the 10 open mic slots of 5 minutes each that are available; contact Alasdair for one of these – though a few are earmarked for last month’s reserves via firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 07783 734523.
Admission still at the bargain price of £5 (£3 open mic and concessions).
