Off The Shelf festival: DW Cities Sheffield launch
This autumn super cool publisher Dostoyevsky Wannabe adds a Sheffield volume to its wide-ranging DW Cities series. Edited by Emma Bolland, the anthology spans fiction, essays and verse, including my new poem sequence ‘Pulp’, a response to Sheffield’s recent disposal of trees and libraries. I’ll be reading from this at the launch, alongside fellow contributors Helen Blejerman, Angelina D’Roza, Louise Finney, Rachel Genn, Joanne Lee and Brian Lewis. 7pm, £6 (£5 concessions) in advance, £7 (£6) on the door.
