Finding the Words is a regular poetry evening every month at York Explore Library. Each evening brings together three poets and we aim to include both published writers and those working towards a collection. We’ll have a bar available and readings last around an hour. The evening is also a chance to share and chat, so please feel free to bring any news or information about poetry local, regional or national.
Nick Allen’s poetry has appeared in various magazines and anthologies – most recently, the Interpreter’s House, the Poetry Salzburg Review, Verse Matters and Un/Forced: a collection of writing from Rhubarb. His first pamphlet, the necessary line, was published by Half Moon Books of Otley, in October. He helps to organise the open mic evening, Rhubarb at the Triangle in Shipley, the last Wednesday of each month. He is a sub-editor with the on-line poetry magazine Algebra of Owls. He derives most of his sustenance from malt whisky and good espressos.
Katharine Goda writes poetry as a way of recording and reflecting on moments which would otherwise go unnoticed. Her work has appeared on the YorkMix poetry blog and been chosen for two Forward Poetry anthologies. She enjoys participating in Poetry Society stanza groups and workshops, volunteering with participatory arts organisations and running poetry writing sessions.
Pauline Kirk was born in Birmingham, and now lives in York. She has had ten collections of poetry and six novels published, three under her own name, and four as PJ Quinn. Her most recent collection, Time Traveller, was published by Graft Poetry. She is Editor of Fighting Cock Press, and a member of the editorial group of Dream Catcher.
This event will take place in the Marriott Room and cost £3 or £2 with a York Card
