David Calcutt is well known for his wonderful readings throughout the West Midlands and beyond. Like the other 2 poets with him he is a generous giving reader. If you dont know his work – come along!! If you do I imagine you have already booked your tickets
You will notice there isnt an endorsement next to his collection below… this is because it is so hot off the press it is scorching!! Not due out until July – you will have a chance to buy a copy on the 22nd…
See you there! Look at all the other wonderful events! Nadia xx
Sunday 22nd April 3 to 5pm Poetry in the Afternoon – David Calcutt, Keith Chandler & Gregory Leadbetter. BUY NOW
Three of my favourite poets will read from their recent works. If you don’t know their poetry yet – I hope that you too will be as taken by it as I am. Three very different poetic approaches and voices – but each in keeping with ‘Ceriog’s desire for “simplicity of diction and emotional sincerity”
David Calcutt was born and lives in the West Midlands.
He has written many plays for both theatre and radio and published several novels and stories for children, as well as four pamphlets of poetry: Outlaws, Road Kill, Through the Woods, and The Old Man in the House of Bone.
The last of the light is not the last of the light (Fair Acre Press, 2018) is David Calcutt’s first full poetry collection. Not published until July 2nd, 2018 – it will be in print and available at this festival
