ON THURSDAY 23 JUNE WE ARE HOSTING SUZANNE CONWAY — and we shall also hear the results of the WIVENHOE POETRY PRIZE COMPETITION 2011 …

So poetrywivenhoe awaits you Upstairs at The Greyhound on Thursday 23 June, and offers you a great evening of poetry

++++++++++

Suzanne Conway is well known to poetrywivenhoe as a frequent and well-received contributor to our open mic sessions. Suzanne completed an MA in Creative and Critical Writing at Sussex University in 1998 and won the Asham Award for Poetry that same year; she won the Live Literature Fresh Talent Poetry Prize in 2002. She has published widely in magazines including The Rialto, Smiths Knoll, Seam, Magma, Ambit and has one forthcoming with London Magazine. She has been mentored by John Burnside and published the poetry and prose they worked on together in an anthology called Don’t Think of Tigers. She has a poem in the recently published anthology The Captain’s Tower: Seventy Poets Celebrate Bob Dylan at Seventy. She has performed her work at The Troubadour, The Torriano and is due to read at The Betsey Trotwood for Ambit on 20 June. She is slowly completing her first collection.

When she isn’t transforming experience into poems, she relishes swimming in the sea, running the hills or riding her bicycle very fast. This is punctuated by lots of lying down.

Don’t miss a great evening with Suzanne on 23 June!
