An evening with Maytree Poets

THURSDAY 28 APRIL / 6 – 8PM / BOOK HERE

Join us for an evening of poetry readings with Seán Street & Pauline Rowe

Seán Street started his working life as an actor with Birmingham Repertory Theatre before moving into radio. He is a widely published poet, radio practitioner, teacher, and a writer of many prose works that explore the philosophical nature of sound. He is also Emeritus Professor at Bournemouth University where he gained his PhD in 2003. He has published four poetry pamphlets and nine poetry collections. His most recent collections, Camera Obscura (Rockingham Press, May 2016) and his anthology Radio Waves (Enitharmon, 2004) examines his preoccupation with time, space and communication. Seán’s latest poetry pamphlet, The Sound Recordist was published by Maytree Press in 2021.His most recent poetry grows out of a lifetime working with sound, reflecting on its crucial place within and around us, and this new sequence comes directly from listening, using the metaphor of the microphone and recording machine as a non-judgemental witness to place and history, through pain and cruelty to the consolations and inspirations of art and music and the natural world, finally moving towards a quest for silence and stillness. Isolation, alienation, exile and loneliness are themes; but above all the human voice – its dialects, timbres and its sense of communicating a self – is a recurring motif.

The cover for Seán’s pamphlet The Sound Recordist is Paula Dunn’s painting, Evening Stillness. The cover of Pauline’s pamphlet The Weight of Snow is an untitled painting by David Coldwell and The Ghost Hospital features cover art by Marsden based artist, Kevin Threlfall. Poet and writer Roy Marshall has recently joined the editorial team, and the press is about to launch its 35th publication.
