On 24th March, our friends Nancy and Mike will again treat us to an evening of poetry at their Poetry in the Crypt event. It will take place in The Crypt at St Mary’s Islington on Saturday 24th March 2018 at 7pm.

The evening features works and readings from three published poets:

John McCullough’s first collection of poems, The Frost Fairs, won the Polari First Book Prize in 2012 and was a Book of the Year for The Independent and a summer read in The Observer. His new collection, Spacecraft, was named one of The Guardian’s Best Books for Summer and shortlisted for the Ledbury-Forte prize.

Kate Noakes writes poetry, short fiction, novels and non-fiction. Her most recent poetry collections are Paris, Stage Left (Eyewear Publishing, 2017) and Tattoo on Crow Street (Parthian, 2015).

Clare Pollard has published five collections of poetry with Bloodaxe, most recently Incarnation (2017).
