Jennifer McGowan’s new collection With Paper for Feet will be launched by Arachne Press in Oxford on Friday 03/03/2017 at 7.30 at the Albion Beatnik Bookstore.
About the collection: With Paper for Feet is themed and narrative, drawing together Jennifer A. McGowan’s poetry of myth and folktale, and the frailties – human and otherwise – behind them. With Paper for Feet explores, mostly from a female perspective, the guts it takes to live or – often -die, un-heroically. her characters laugh, argue, complain, suffer, curse, aware that more is expected of them, but unwilling to play up. Jennifer explores many voices including the women of Troy & many of Shakespeare’s characters, as well as poems based in other cultures including France, Africa & China.

Seminar Sound, Time and Space – into the Universe of the Imagination,
with Seán Street on 23 July (3:30-5pm) at the Oxford Friends Meeting House.
Sound and poetry are linked, because voice is sound, and poetry grows out of the human voice. In this seminar Seán Street will explore ways of taking this further, and focus consciously on making sound an even more imaginative component in our work as poets.
There will also be a reading with Séan Street on 23rd July at the Oxford Friends Meeting House, 43 St Giles at 7.30pm.
It is possible to attend the seminar and the reading separately. Those who wish to attend both will receive a discount on the combined entry fee.
If you would like to attend the seminar with Seán Street, could you email: email@example.com
Seán Street is a poet, a broadcaster and a writer of works that explore the philosophical nature of sound. He is Emeritus Professor at Bournemouth University.
His website is here: http://www.seanstreet.com/
