Next Poetry Evening: 18 June 2012, 7.30pm

Join us at The Jolly Cricketers on 18 June 2012 for a free evening of poetry with our featured poets James Byrne, Kayo Chingonyi, Emily Hasler, and Kirsten Irving.

James Byrne originally hails from Buckinghamshire. He is the editor of The Wolf poetry magazine, and the author of ‘Passage of Time’ (Flipped Eye) and ‘Blood/Sugar’ (Arc). He is the co-editor of ‘Voice Recognition: 21 Poets for the 21st Century’ (Arc) and editor of ‘Bones Will Crow: 14 contemporary Burmese poets’ (Bloodaxe).

Kayo Chingonyi has just released with Salt his long-anticipated début pamphlet ‘Some Bright Elegance’. He has performed all over the UK in venues and events such as the London Literature Festival, The RSC Swan Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, and Buckingham Palace.

Emily Hasler has published a pamphlet of poetry with Salt called ‘Natural Histories’. In 2009 she won second prize in the Edwin Morgan International Poetry Competition. Her poems appear in The Salt Book of Younger Poets and The Best British Poetry 2011.

Kirsten Irving is the co-editor of Sidekick Books, and the editor of the cult hand-made magazine Fuselit. Her pamphlet ‘What to do’ was published by Happenstance Press, and her full collection, ‘Never Never Never Come Back’ is coming out with Salt later this year.

The pub is a 5 minute walk from Seer Green station, which is a 20 minute train ride from London Marylebone. So no excuses not to come eternal city-dwellers!

The readings will be followed by an open mic. Do come and sign up for a slot!
