Thom Walker
Selected Poems 2015 - 2016
Publication Launch

Wednesday August 10th 2016
6 - 8pm

‘LAND’ is a series of five booklets containing selected poems by Thom Walker. The work focuses on the ways we negotiate our physical and sensory experience of the landscapes around us (most frequently featured are those of northern England and Scotland).

Shifting from nonsense writing to autobiographical work, the poems are somewhere between the worlds of Ivor Cutler and Emily Dickinson.

This series of booklets brings together over 50 poems from the past year and a half, grouping them into themes: ‘Air & Electricity’, ‘Water-core, ‘Land’, ‘Dreams & Limbs’ and finally ‘Colne,’ a set of new poems written in response to the area in West Yorkshire where the writer grew up.

Thom will be reading, the booklets will be available for the first time, drinks will be provided.
