All welcome to this Inventions of the Text event.
Inventions of the Text
“A full-frontal engagement with queer experience”… “A rich, heart-breaking, vivid poetry collection about representation, discrimination, sexuality, and what society can do to fix its repeated attacks on marginalised groups”… “Powerful, urgent and deeply relevant reading”… Quotes from three reviews of poet Richard Scott’s debut collection, Soho (Faber & Faber, 2018) which was a Gay’s the Word book of the year and shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot prize.
Join us on Thursday 13 January when Richard will be reading newer poems alongside a selection from Soho and taking questions from the (Zoom) floor.
Richard’s recent works include ‘Quartz’ published in the Poetry Review and ‘Amethyst’ in the anthology Queer Life, Queer Love (Muswell Press). His poetry has been translated into German and French. His pamphlet Wound (2016, Rialto) won the Michael Marks Poetry Award 2016. Richard is a lecturer in creative writing at Goldsmiths, University of London and he teaches poetry at the Faber Academy.
