Writers at Manchester Met: Jean Sprackland - “Green Noise” at Number 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, 28 November 2018, free entry - Visit now
As part of its Writers at Manchester Met series, The Manchester Writing School hosts an evening with lecturer and poet Jean Sprackland, celebrating the launch of her latest poetry collection Green Noise, just out on Jonathan Cape. Recently featured on BBC Radio 4’s arts and culture show Front Row, the book showcases Jean’s nature writing, and the Penguin website says: “Deeply engaged with the flux of the world, these poems are alert, precise and vividly memorable – listening to the ‘machine of spring/with all your levers thrown to max’, ‘hearing the long bones of the trees stretch and crack’.”
Jean is the author of four other critically acclaimed poetry collections, along with fiction and non-fiction works, and she is the winner of the Portico Prize and the Costa Poetry Award for her collection Tilt. She featured at Dunham Massey’s first-ever poetry festival, Women In Words, in September, and at this free event, she will be reading from and talking about Green Noise, answering questions from the audience and signing books.
