Guest Poet: Various contributors to the new book Salt on the Wind

25th August 2016, The Swan Hotel, 1 Church Street, Bradford on Avon, BA15 1LN

Come and join us at Bradford's poem-and-a-pint night for a special celebration of the new book Salt on the Wind, a collection of poems by 18 poets in response to poems by American poet Ruth Stone.
Stone (1915-2011) was born in Roanoke, Virginia. Her work, often in free verse, is full of music and song - deceptively accessible, yet complex, strange and profound.
The book is edited by Chaucer Cameron and Helen Dewbery with a Foreword by Bianca Stone.
The evening will include readings by a selection of the book's contributing poets:

Chaucer Cameron is co-editor of Salt on the Wind: poems in response to Ruth Stone, Nothing in the Garden and The Museum of Light. She has been published in journals, anthologies and magazines. Chaucer's poetry-films have been screened Internationally and locally, in New Delhi, India, Atticus Review, Liberated Words Poetry Film Festival, Bristol Poetry Festival, Swindon Festival of Poetry and Moving Poems. www.elephantsfootprint.com

Emma van Woerkom is a poet, shared reading facilitator and author of the poetry pamphlet, Beside the Seaside; (Heritage Lottery Funded). Her work has been published in magazines and anthologies, including Not Dead Yet (Penhall Publishing). She has also collaborated with other artists, notably Brazilian Rock Band, Rei Lagarto, with whom she wrote material for their studio album, The Clockmaker's Dream. Performances include Bristol Festival of Nature and Hay Festival. The Shetland Isles is the focus of Emma's latest project.

Rosie Jackson's collection The Light Box is out with Cultured Llama in April 2016. She is widely published. In 2015-16 she won First Prize in the Berkshire Arts Festival, Joint First Prize in the Bath Poetry Cafe, and the Hilly Cansdale award at Wells. Her memoir The Glass Mother will be published by Unthank in Nov 2016. 'Stonking good poems.' (Jo Bell.)

Deborah Harvey's writing is rooted in her native West Country. Her poems have been widely published and have won several prizes. Her first collection of poetry, Communion (Indigo Dreams, 2011) was followed by her historical novel, Dart (2013) and her second poetry collection Map Reading for Beginners (2014). She is a trustee of Poetry Can, the poetry development agency for the south-west of England.

Dawn Gorman devizes and runs arts events, including Words & Ears in Bradford on Avon. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment wrote a symphony based on her poem Replenishment in 2015, and the overture-film-poem for that featured at Cannes Short Film Fesival 2015. This year, as last, she will be poet-in-residence at the EDS Gallery during Edinburgh Fringe. Her pamphlet This Meeting of Tracks (2013) was published by Toadlily Press.

Claire Crowther has been widely published in journals such as Poetry Review, the Times Literary Supplement, London Review of Books, New Statesman and anthologies such as The Best British Poetry (Salt 2013, 2015). Her most recent collections are On Narrowness (Shearsman, 2015) and Silents (Hercules Editions, 2015). She is currently poet in residence at the Royal Mint Museum.

Angela France has had poems published in many of the leading journals and has been anthologised a number of times. Her publications include Occupation (Ragged Raven Press, 2009), Lessons in Mallemaroking (Nine Arches Press, 2011) and Hide (Nine Arches Press, 2013). Angela teaches creative writing at the University of Gloucestershire and in various community settings as well as working for a local charity.

Julie-ann Rowell won a Poetry Book Society Award with her pamphlet collection, Convergence (Brodie Press). Her first full collection, Letters North, was nominated for the Michael Murphy Poetry Prize for Best First Collection in Britain and Ireland in 2011. She has poems in several anthologies and the latest anthology, Furies (For Books' Sake) was runner-up in the Saboteur Award 2015. She is currently taking part in a project providing poems for an interactive mobile map for Bristol showing sites of importance to Romanticism in the South West, organised by Bristol University.
