Description

Join WORD! - one of the longest running poetry nights in the UK and former Saboteur Award Nominee - for this very special Beeston Library, Inspire Poetry Festival edition, with poet and compere, Lydia Towsey, special guests - and the multi-award winning, George Szirtes.

Born in Hungary in 1948, George Szirtes’ first book of poems The Slant Door won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial prize in 1979. Among his many other publications, Reel was awarded the T.S. Eliot Prize in 2004 – a prize for which he has since been shortlisted twice.

He has also won numerous international prizes for his poetry, and the Man Booker International Prize for his translations of novels by László Krasznahorkai.

A prolific writer and brilliant reader, his latest work The Photographer at Sixteen (Maclehose press, 2019) has attracted unanimous praise from across both the media and the literary community.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see him in Beeston and be part of what’s sure to be a truly outstanding evening.

To perform on the open mic, contact compere and organiser, Lydia Towsey in advance by email via hello@wordpoetry.co.uk. Some spots may also be available on the night.
