Join Emily Blewitt, Christina Thatcher and Lisa Matthews for an evening of poetry about grief, love, addiction, womanhood, depression, journeys and cats. Emily Blewitt's eagerly awaiting debut collection, This is Not a Rescue is out now from Seren. The poems move in various registers, keyed to their subject-matter and the author’s appealingly wry, thoughtful manner, a delightfully circuitous wit, and her pointed intelligence, make this book one of the best and most entertaining debuts you are likely to read this year. Admission to the event is free.
