Award-Winning Poet to Discuss Work with Literature Students

18 February, 11.00-12.15
The University of Worcester Arena,
Hylton Road, Worcester
Everyone welcome

Celebrated poet, Owen Sheers, will visit the University of Worcester next week to discuss his work with first year English Literary Studies students.

Sheers, whose accolades include the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, a Somerset Maugham Award and the Hay Medal for Poetry will read extracts from his work Pink Mist, one of many texts studied during a new module, ‘What is Literature?’

The module introduces students to the subject by examining a wide range of writing genres produced in different periods, from Jonathan Swift’s 18th century pamphlet ‘A Modest Proposal’ and Charles Dickens’ ‘Oliver Twist’, right through to 21st century texts, including writing by Sheers and his contemporaries.

Pink Mist, which tells the story of three young soldiers deployed to Afghanistan, was selected for the module due to its contemporary points of reference and its allusive treatment of the subject, which invites comparisons with the work of war poets such as David Jones and Wilfred Owen.

Following the reading, Sheers will take questions from the audience, which will include both University students and local school pupils.

Sheers’ visit, which will take place on February 18, at the University of Worcester Arena, is open to local schools. For more information, or to reserve a space, contact Dr Tricia Connell at t.connell@worc.ac.uk.

A Christmas/New Year Special at the University of Worcester Arena

Saturday 28th December 6.00pm.  Worcester Wolves V Birmingham Knights home game.

A family get together, a staff night out, or friends around the table… come and join the pack!

Please email n.rusher@worc.ac.uk for further information.
