Laurie Eaves launches his debut collection Biceps with Burning Eye Books.
Biceps is a love story, following a relationship from first sparks one frosty bonfire night through day trips to windy Hull and into the stalemate of dysfunctional domesticity. It’s a story about the physical and emotional tidying we go through when we fall out of love. It’s a story that explores the small ways we learn to understand ourselves better as a result of our relationships and gain the strength to start rebuilding in the face of personal loss.
Laurie Eaves is the third best poet called Laurie in London and his work has been anthologised by Poetry Rivals, Bad Betty Press, Allographic Press, GUG Press and Spoken Word London. It’s also featured in videos for Muddy Feet Poetry, Process Productions and Team UK Youth Cycling.
He works regularly with The Poetry Takeaway, co-hosts the Dead Darlings podcast and co-produces the Vogon Poetry Slam.
Support from very special guests: Laurie Bolger, Hannah Gordon, Hannah Chutzpah and Hattie Grünewald.
This is an all-ages event.
