Join us for an event focused on three young and emerging poets and their equally exciting new publisher, ignitionpress. A part of Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre, ignitionpress is a pamphlet press with an international outlook, focused on publishing entirely original and arresting poetry. The first poet, Patrick James Errington, is a Canadian writer, translator and researcher who has worked for The New Yorker and The Columbia Journal, and is currently the editor-in-chief of The Scores. Reading with him will be Belinda Zhawi, a Zimbabwean-born writer and educator. Belinda was a 2015/16 London Laureate and the 2016/17 Institute of Contemporary Arts Associate Poet. Also reading is Lily Blacksell, a Roundhouse poetry slam finalist. She writes for page and for stage, and was been nominated for the Pushcart Prize 2017 and Best New Poets 2017.
