Poetics – how poems get written

I’m giving a talk at Edge Hill University this Thursday, 15th October on poetics, reading some poems and talking about how they were written. The talk is entitled: ‘Flying and the gap between intention and outcome in the act of writing’. Andrew Taylor will be talking on ‘The Poetics of Absence Part 2’. The talks are part of ‘Going Public‘: a series of events marking the tenth anniversary of the Poetry & Poetics Research Group at Edge Hill. Andy and I will be referring to our chapters in Rupert Loydell’s anthology: ‘Troubles Swapped for Something Fresh: Manifestos and Unmanifestos‘ (Salt Publishing). Scott Thurston gave an excellent talk last Thursday on  ‘Internal Rhyme’, which is the title of his forthcoming collection from Shearsman. Next Thursday’s session will take place at Edge Hill in the Education Block : E21, 6.30-8.30. Other events are listed on Robert Sheppard’s ‘Pages‘.
