Launch of 'Three Degrees of Separation' by Rachel Lewis

5.00

Saturday 23rd March, 7-10pm, at The Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton St, London, WC2H 9BX

What happens to love when mental illness steps in? Why do some of us get better and some of us stay worse? How do families and friends hold together as the cracks show?

Join us for the launch of the second poetry pamphlet in our new poetry series in 2019!

Three Degrees of Separation is Rachel Lewis's debut pamphlet, published by Wordsmith_HQ in 2019. Written and submitted in response to our 'Siblings' competition last year, Rachel's poems are brave and strong; asking the difficult questions about love, family, and survival in the face of mental ill-health.

Rachel’s debut poetry collection explores these important, sometimes delicate themes across a sequence of poems that will make you smile with sadness and cry with laughter all at once. Her verse is clever and refreshing, beautifully moving, yet fun at the same time.

And, if that wasn't enough, to celebrate the launch of her debut pamphlet, Rachel will be joined by an awesome line-up of friends and performance poets as part of this wonderful event. The line-up includes writer and audio producer Eloise Stevens (bio shortly), and winner of the 2018 Forward (Felix Dennis) Prize for Best First Collection, Phoebe Power.

As well as her debut collection, Shrines of Upper Austria (Carcanet, 2018) being awarded this prize, it was also shortlisted for the 2018 T.S. Eliot Prize and is a Poetry Book Society recommendation. She has collaborated with other artists on various poetry, live performance and visual art projects and is currently based in York. You can see more of Phoebe’s work on her website.

Rachel and the Wordsmith team are delighted to have Eloise and Phoebe join us to celebrate the launch of Rachel’s debut poetry sequence.

We hope that you can come along for an informal evening of readings, performances, purchase a pamphlet or two (if you wish to), meet some friendly poetry faces and, of course, join us in drinks to celebrate.

Cover art will be released middle of February.
The full schedule will be announced shortly.
