You can hear Martin and Helen reading their poems from 7.30pm upstairs at the historic Leopard pub in Burslem. Entry is free … and please bring some of your own poems to read and discuss.
Martin is a poet, teacher, former army officer and accountant (then why has he agreed to appear for free?) and winner of the 2013 Saboteur Best Spoken Word Show Award. He has published two collections, Whistle and Boring The Arse off Young People. He chairs Cafe Writers in Norwich.
The Double Life of Clocks (2002), The Dog in the Sky (2006) and The Breakfast Machine (2010).
She is a tutor at the University of East Anglia, for The Poetry School and for the Arvon Foundation and an Editor for the Poetry Archive.
We are delighted to have Martin and Helen with us. Let’s give them a warm Potteries welcome … perhaps not extreme bottle-kiln temperature but something to take the chill off an October evening.
