Rhiannon Hooson | Goliat Launch

Join us for the launch of Goliat, the long-awaited follow-up to Rhiannon Hooson’s debut collection The Other City (Seren 2016). The title poem takes us to the Barents Sea and the dark waters of a Russian oil field named Goliat – a whale, a giant, a monster – to the ‘singular infinities of the wintering sea’, where something is starting to sing. This intelligent, sensuous second collection tackles the precariousness of climate emergency and of existing in a human body, along with poems exploring the monstrous and the more-than-human, and the intimate histories of women and their work. Admission is Free but reservation is required. For further information and to reserve your place:
