Throughout 2018 Nine Arches Press is celebrating 10 years of publishing. Join them for our birthday summer soirée as we celebrate the launch of two exciting new collections!
British-American poet Robert Peake returns with his much-anticipated second collection, Cyclone: poems about weathering storms – personal, political, psychological – in our present-day climate of chaos. From his trans-Atlantic perspective Robert writes of global turmoil and belonging, of bereavement and the long aftermath, and of everyday kindnesses.
Exploring place and displacement, boundaries and borders, Richie McCaffery’s latest work, Passport, grew out of his experience of living in Ghent. As an ‘outsider’ in the city, his poems explore the meaning of running from and coming back home, and how we find our place in life, love and language.
The evening will also feature special guest readings from Josephine Corcoran, with her debut collection What Are You After?, plus Forward Prize-shortlisted poet Abegail Morley (that’s me!), reading from the acclaimed The Skin Diary.
