We’ve got a mid (maybe late?) summer spectacular for you all, with an excellent line up of poets and conversation in a well air conditioned room. Who could ask for more?
This month we’re thrilled to have ALAN BUCKLEY and VICTORIA ADUKWEI BULLEY reading. For a little about them:
Originally from Merseyside, Alan Buckley moved to Oxford in the mid-1980s to study English Literature and has lived there ever since. Although he began writing poems and short stories when he was eight, he stopped in his early teens and took up playing music. He went back to writing in his late 30s. His debut pamphlet Shiver (tall-lighthouse) was a Poetry Book Society choice in summer 2009. His work has been widely published in journals and anthologies in recent years. His second pamphlet, The Long Haul, was published by Happenstance in 2017.
