Reading: Joan Margarit, A.B. Jackson
'Five O’Clock Verses of 2017 showcases two welcome returns to StAnza. A.B. Jackson last read at StAnza almost a decade ago. Since then, he’s been awarded first place in the Edwin Morgen International Poetry Competition, and has seen his second collection, The 'Wilderness Years', named as a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. Meanwhile it’s been a full twelve years since the Catalan poet Joan Margarit graced the StAnza stage. An acclaimed poet, who has twice won Spain’s National Critics Award, Margarit published his third collection in English 'Love is a Place 'with Bloodaxe in 2016. His translator, Anna Crowe, will read alongside Margarit, presenting her translations of his work.
In partnership with Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts.'
