MSt tutor Jenny Lewis will be discussing her poetry with Professor Jem Poster and Oxford poet Sue Leigh at the Oxford Literary Festival on Sunday 7 April, 12.00-1.00pm, St Cross College.
From the announcement:
“Oxfordshire poets Jenny Lewis and Sue Leigh discuss their writing and its sources.
Lewis and Leigh have been working recently at opposite ends of the scale – Lewis on a vigorous version of the epic of Gilgamesh and Leigh on a collection of finely worked lyric poems – but they share a vision of the poet’s art as vocation and of the cultural importance of poetry itself.
Lewis is an Anglo-Welsh poet and playwright who teaches poetry at the University of Oxford. Her recent publications are Gilgamesh Retold, Fathom and Taking Mesopotamia. Leigh is a poet and writer based in Oxfordshire’s Windrush Valley. She teaches creative writing at the University of Oxford’s Department of Continuing Education. Her latest work is Chosen Hill.
Here they talk to poet, novelist and festival director of academic programmes Professor Jem Poster.”
