I’ll be appearing in Oxford later this month as part of Not the Oxford Literary Festival on March 22nd at the Albion Beatnik Bookstore in Jericho. Dan Holloway has organised it & you can find out more about the line-up here.
Alex Woolley from Oxford’s Cherwell Newspaper has interviewed me this week, click here for the online version.
I feel a bit funny about posting this – something about being from Yorkshire and not wanting to draw attention to myself – but anyhow, here’s the blurb from Eight Cuts. Come down & say hello? And bring your friends!
“Adelle Stripe is one of the most brilliant and important poets writing today as well as a key figure in the British literary underground. She is the author of collections like Cigarettes In Bed, stunningly produced by artisan press Blackheath Books. Her latest collection, Dark Corners of the Land, was 3:AM Magazine’s Poetry Book of the Year in 2012. She earned her place in alternative culture’s hall of fame as a founder member of Brutalism, often hailed as the first great literary movement of the internet age.”
Adelle will be supported by
Anna Percy, the driving force behind Manchester’s Stirred Poetry collective and author of lyrical, political, unforgettable poetry
Anna Hobson, the organiser of Aspire Fly, Oxford International Women’s Festival’s poetry night
Dan Holloway, MC of acclaimed spoken word show The New Libertines, who will be premiering material from his forthcoming show Some of These Things are Beautiful
