Rich Goodson’s debut chapbook Mr Universe is out in June 2017 from Eyewear.

​His work’s been described by George Szirtes as: “convincing and compulsive, original, adroit and dramatically exciting.”

In Mr Universe you’ll find his poem ‘Pine’ which won the Stonewood Prize in the Aurora Writing Competition 2016 (judged by Pascale Petit). You’ll also find ‘Daniel Craig: The Screensaver’ which was quoted in The Observer newspaper and is anthologised in The Poetry Of Sex (Penguin) and others which have appeared in print magazines such as The Interpreter’s House and Under The Radar.

Rich is joined by fellow poets Maria Taylor (Melanchrini, Nine Arches) and Roy Marshall (The Sun Bathers, Shoestring).

Free, refreshments provided. Please let us know you’re coming.
