Uncut Poets at the Exeter Phoenix on 26th April at 7.30pm with Roselle Angwin and Rose Cook
So April has been doing that thing of stirring dull roots with spring rain – quite a lot of rain actually – and a plume of sun and it’s already time for the next monthly edition of Uncut Poets. Mixing memory and desire will be our two guest poets, Roselle Angwin and Rose Cook.
Roselle’s new book from Pindrop Press, A Trick Of The Light, is a luminous, reflective account of the history, landscapes and special atmosphere of the island of Iona, where she leads annual writing retreats.
Rose’s latest collection Hearth, from Cultured Llama, showcases her characteristic mix of lightness of touch and clarity of vision, dealing with the changes, the losses and gains that age brings, as well as the beauty and revelations of the natural world.
The evening in the Phoenix Workshop will be presented by Alasdair Paterson and a mystery co-presenter. There will be the usual 10 open mic spots and anyone wanting to grab one of these 5-minute short cuts to celebrity should contact Alasdair here on FB, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07783 734 523.
Admission £5 (£3 for open mic and concessions). Lilacs bred out of the dead earth optional.
