Event description
Audience-directed, choose-your-own-adventure event using live polls to journey through a text by Dr Kim Moore, hosted by Dr Nikolai Duffy

About this Event

For the past three and a half years, I've been a PhD candidate at Manchester Metropolitan University, exploring how to use lyric poetry to write about everyday sexism and female desire.

My thesis is a reader-directed text, inspired by the 'choose your own adventure books' by Ian Livingstone that I read throughout my childhood. It contains sections of prose and small groups of poems. At the end of each of these, the reader is presented with a choices of what they would like to read next.

Whilst this structure would be unwieldy to replicate at a real-life event, I thought I would take advantage of Zoom and create this experimental reading, where you, the audience, will decide what they would like to hear next using polls.

The choices you will be presented with will sometimes ask you to pick the phrase you're most attracted to. Sometimes they will ask you to reflect on your reaction to what you've just heard and then make your choice.

Some of the material in this event will discuss sexual violence and trauma.

If you would like to be part of this event, please buy a ticket, and then tell your friends!

The event will be introduced and hosted by Dr Nikolai Duffy from Manchester Metropolitan University.
