Three Poets at The Hive: Claire Trévien, Math Jones and Charley Barnes

7.00pm 23/04/19 The Studio

The Creative Writing course at the University of Worcester are delighted and very lucky to have Dr Claire Trévien visiting to read at the Hive from her new pamphlet Brain Fugue. Claire is an Anglo-Breton author. Born in Brittany in 1985, she resided in the UK for nearly two decades and performed her work internationally, from South Africa to New Orleans. She is the author of the pamphlet Low-Tide Lottery (Salt, 2011), and two collections The Shipwrecked House (Penned in the Margins, 2013), Astéronymes (Penned in the Margins, 2016), and Brain Fugue (Verve Poetry Press, 2019). Claire devised and ran Sabotage reviews and awards before recently handing the reins over to Charley Barnes (see below).

We are excited to welcome Math Jones, who was born, and currently lives, in London, but lived in Worcester for many years. A pagan in the Old English and Norse tradition, he often writes poetry on the stories and in the metres of that tradition. He also writes more usual verses, performing throughout the Midlands and London. A bookseller for many years, he retrained in 2008 to be an actor, and has been acting professionally since then, as Math Sams. He has understudied a major role in a West End show. Math will be reading from his new collection from Arachne Press, The Knotsman.

We are also pleased to host our new member of staff in the Creative Writing Team, Dr Charley Barnes to read from her poetry collection. Charley Barnes is a writer and academic from Worcestershire. Her poetry is published by Picaroon, Bonnie’s Crew, and Atrium, amongst other journals. Her debut poetry pamphlet, A Z-hearted Guide to Heartache, is available from V. Press. Charley recently published her first crime thriller, Intention, from Bloodhound Books. Charley is the new chief of Sabotage Reviews and Awards.

This is a FREE event, hosted by the Creative Writing course and the School of Humanities at the University of Worcester.
