Born in Belfast in 1984, Adam Crothers lives in Cambridge, where he completed a PhD in English at Girton College in 2010; he works as a library assistant, literary critic, and teacher, and as a Commissioning Editor for the online magazine The Literateur. A contributor to New Poetries VI (Carcanet, 2015), he is also the author of Several Deer (Carcanet, 2016), described in Poetry London as 'a highly charged, word-drunk ride across time, art and idiomatic expression'.
Adam's reading coincides with the launch of issue three of Eborakon,
in which his work features, and we are delighted to welcome other contributors to the magazine to mark the occasion by reading from their work: John Wedgwood Clarke, David Troupes, Judith Willson, Rachel Plummer, and Francesca Bratton. Eborakon
is an annual poetry magazine based at the University of York that publishes new writers alongside established poets. Submissions for issue four will be opened at the launch.
All welcome, refreshments provided.
