Poetry in the Cathedral


On Sunday 14 July at 4.30 pm three poets, Elizabeth Cook, Dean Parkin and Rebecca Goss, will read a selection of poetry in St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds.

 

Admission is free, retiring collection.The programme will last approx 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Refreshments will be available.


Elizabeth Cook has been Writer in Residence at St Edmundsbury Cathedral since September 2012 and lives much of the time in north east Suffolk. She is the author of Achilles (Methuen 2001), a fiction with a performance life, and has written the words for Francis Grier's oratorio, The Passion of Jesus of Nazareth (BBC radio 3, 2007). The title poem of her collection, Bowl (Worple 2006) was a Poem on the Underground; the collection was reprinted this year.


Rebecca Goss grew up in Suffolk and has recently returned to live in the county, after spending twenty years in Liverpool. Her first collection The Anatomy of Structures was published by Flambard Press in 2010. Her second, titled Her Birth, is due in September 2013 and will be published by Carcanet/Northern House.


Dean Parkin was born in 1969 and left school at the age of sixteen to work at a printer's and then in a bookshop. He has worked for The Poetry Trust since 1999 and is currently the Creative Director. His third pamphlet, 'The Sunshine of Fortune', was published in 2013 and was written as a part of a residency in the Stour Valley. He's probably the only poet to appear on BBC1 reading a poem on the loo! He is currently working on a project with St Edmundbsury Cathedral to create a poem about the Cathedral generated by ideas submitted by members of the Cathedral community.
