To commemorate Disability Recognition Month within the School of English we are delighted to host the award-winning poet Lisa Kelly for a public poetry reading and Q&A. Lisa’s debut collection A Map Towards Fluency was published by Carcanet (2019) and was shortlisted for the Michael Murphy Memorial Poetry Prize. She is also the author of several poetry pamphlets, including Philip Levine’s Good Ear, which explores her single-sided deafness (Stonewood Press, 2018). Her poetry has been featured in multiple journals, magazines and anthologies, including in Carcanet’s New Poetries VII (2018) and the ground-breaking Stairs and Whispers: D/deaf and Disabled Poets Write Back (Nine Arches Press, 2017); she teaches creative writing and poetry in performance at the Torriano Meeting House in London, and is current co-Chair of Magma Poetry. 

This will take place 7pm Tuesday 22 November at Portland Coffee Company (University Park Campus). The event will consist of a 20-minute reading from poet Lisa Kelly, then a 20-minute audience Q&A, and finally a closing 10-minute reading.
