North x North West Poetry Tour

January 11th, 2017

During January and February 2017 I will be one of six core poets touring the north west and Yorkshire. Alongside Amy Cutler, Patricia Farrell, SJ Fowler, Tom Jenks & Chris McCabe I'll be on tour to York, Manchester, Edge Hill, Leeds, Sheffield and Liverpool. Curated by Tom Jenks and SJ Fowler, with local curators Christopher Stephenson, JT Welsch, Linda Kemp and Robert Sheppard. The North West Poetry Tour is supported by Arts Council England. More information from the enemies website:

The North West Poetry Tour comprises over sixty poets collaborating in pairs to produce brand new collaborative works for performance, commissioned for each event, over six nights in January and February 2017. Around sixteen poets local to each of the six venues will perform on each night alongside a core group of six touring poets, who will perform at every venue, strengthening regional links between poets, arts organisations and audiences, as well as giving a new platform for some of the regions more overlooked innovative poets. These free events will aim to draw in the amazing, experimental, dynamic resurgence in literary and avant-garde poetry which has so marked the north west poetry scene over the last decade.
