Our special guest readers are Nicola Jackson and Paul McGrane, joint winners of the Geoff Stevens Memorial Poetry Prize 2017, who both have debut poetry collections with Indigo Dreams. Nicola and Paul also invite you to their launch party at the Poetry Cafe, Saturday 1 September, 6.30pm.
Nicola Jackson’s Difficult Women explores working women’s experiences. The defiant tone is testimony to women’s strength and determination in the face of the complexities of their lives.
Paul McGrane’s Elastic Man is a mix-tape of poems spanning political and romantic themes with Elvis, Tommy Cooper and Denis Norden thrown in as a bonus.
