Salt Modern Voices: Oxford

At last, Salt Modern Voices makes its UK debut & the festivities begin in Oxford with Shaun Belcher, Mark Burnhope, Emily Hasler and Claire Trevien. We will be reading at the Albion Beatnik Bookshop from 7pm, do come and say hi.

As a taster, you will find below a choice quote on each of the four poets, come to hear us if you like what you read.

Shaun Belcher: “Belcher cannot be accused of nostalgia or pastoral myth-making but is as vituperative in tone as Larkin. — Raymond Friel

Mark Burnhope: “This debut pamphlet introduces a serious and playful, tender and ironic, strong and coherent new voice. A definite talent to watch.”  — Andrew Philip

Emily Hasler: “Hasler has real gifts: her observations are sharp, her language is crisp, and her music is beguiling.” — Paul Batchelor

Claire Trevien: “This is fresh, exuberant, intellectually serious poetry, enriched by a French passport and a French library”   Katy Evans-Bush
