Join us for an evening of poetry with Nottingham’s Leafe Press
Blossom Hibbert is a young poet in love with language and prepared to go to whatever interesting places it takes her. The variousness of life, its strangeness and mystery, combined with a surreal and disjointed perception of the world are brought to us by a writer who has paid attention to language, writing and the imagination.
“Reading Lauren Terry’s poetry is like being given an after-hours tour of a favourite museum or gallery space, gaining access to the curiosities housed in the behind-the-scenes storage rooms and archives. This is a poetry of intimate detail, sharply focussed on the things that the eye ordinarily may miss, usually does miss. Like a microscope, we are privy to the things beneath the surface, things that we need to know about. Keep this poetry close. You never know when you will need it to propel you to a place where the details matter, and you can slow the pace and sharpen the focus.”
– Andrew Taylor
