Uncut Poets welcomes as its guest for April none other than Harry Guest, poet, novelist, translator and editor. Harry’s work first found a wide audience as part of the original Penguin Modern Poets series (no. 16) and he has built a long (forty years plus) relationship with Anvil Books, who published his Collected Poems (A Puzzling Harvest) in 2002 and most recently Some Times in 2010. Harry is a much-loved figure in South West poetry and a perennially welcome visitor to Uncut; his readings are models of clarity, gentle humour and (just enough) exposition.
The evening, in Exeter Phoenix’s Black Box from 7.30pm, will be presented by Alasdair Paterson and Gemma Green. 5 minute open mic spots (up to 10) are available and can be booked through Gemma Green at 07855 809394. Admission is £5 (£3 open mic and concessions). There’s also a bar for those who like that kind of thing. Hope to see you there!
