Stand-up Poetry Club: Caroline Bird
"We're really excited to have Caroline Bird in Diss. She is without a doubt one of the major poets of her generation. Her poems are really inventive and funny, they embark on surreal flights of fancy but still manage to hit you in gut. She has published four collections with Carcanet and has been shortlisted for Dylan Thomas prize twice. To add to all the literary accolades she puts on a mesmerising performance, performing her poems without paper and peppering her intros with witty asides."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Born in 1987, she won the Poetry Society's Simon Elvin Young Poet of the Year Award in 2000 and 2001. Her first collection of poems to be published is entitled 'Looking Through Letterboxes'. Caroline's poems are sharp and surreal, her performances manage to be both warm and louche. She's the author of four collections and despite being in her mid twenties is already one of country's top poets.
