The last Language Club of the year at 7.00pm on 28th November 2017 at Plymouth College of Art
The final Language Club of 2017 will be taking place on Tuesday 28th November, in the Lecture Theatre at Plymouth College of Art. Please arrive at 7.00 for a 7.15 prompt start.
There will be four readers on this occasion as follows:
Tony Lopez was the first Professor of Poetry at the University of Plymouth, appointed in 2000. He has published many poetry books, including the award winning False Memory and critical writings including an analysis of the work of W.S. Graham. Prior to his academic and poetry careers he wrote ‘pulp fiction’ for the New English Library and also worked in publishing. He is a masterful exponent of the non-sequitur and much of his poetry makes expert use of montage.
Anthony Caleshu is Professor of English at the University of Plymouth, where he directs the MA Creative Writing Programme. His poetry collections include The Victor Poems (Shearsman) and On Whales (Salt). He has also written fiction and at least one play.
Sarah Cave, who is based in Bodmin, has recently been awarded an MA in poetry from Royal Holloway College. She has published poetry, reviews and short fiction in a variety of magazines, including Tears in the Fence, Shearsman and Oxford Poetry. She recently took part in the Tears in the Fence weekend festival at Stourpaine in Dorset.
Hannah Linden won the Cheltenham Compound competition with Gram Joel Davies in 2015 and has also co-hosted the Exeter Uncut readings with Alasdair Paterson. She has published her work in many magazines, including Prole, Domestic Cherry and Ink and Sweat and Tears. She has appeared at both the Cheltenham and Swindon poetry festivals.
Entry is by donation – a minimum donation of £5 (£3 unwaged) is suggested to cover costs. The Language Club receives no public funding and relies entirely on donations.
We look forward to seeing you there on the 28th. Further events are under consideration from April 2018 onwards.
