Off the Wall Poetry Performing
Monday 20th May 2013
Our guest poet this week is the acclaimed and multi-award-winning poet Isobel Dixon.
She has three poetry collections out: Weather Eye (Carapace, 2001), A Fold in the Map (Jacana, 2007) — of which Clive James said, “Isobel Dixon was born with the gift of lyricism as natural speech” — and The Tempest Prognosticator (Umuzi, 2011), which J.M. Coetzee called “A virtuoso collection”.
Isobel was born in Mthatha, grew up in the Karoo, in Graaff-Reinet, and now works in London.bring money!
Guest-poet presentations last 20–40 minutes. We then take a short break followed by an open-mic session, so bring some of your own or someone else’s poetry to read, or just come and listen.
To get into the open-mic, just ask the host during the break to add your name to the list.
