Patrick Studio Theatre

Our final headline event of the weekend brings three vital poets together to read and talk about their work. Jonathan Edwards' latest collection Gen (Seren, 2018) follows his acclaimed and Costa Book Award for Poetry winning My Family and Other Superheroes. Deryn Rees-Jones' latest collection Erato (Seren, 2019, TS Eliot Shortlisted) follows her recent selected poems, What It's Like to be Alive. Mimi Khalvati's new collection Afterwardsness (Carcanet, 2019) follows previous gems such as The Meanest Flower, Child and The Weather Wheel, all with Carcanet. This wonderful line-up, a real treat, will be hosted for us by Jonathan Davidson from Writing West Midlands and founder of Birmingham Literature Festival.

Tickets are £6.50/£4.50 and can be bought via the festival website.
