Away With Words Volume 2 – Poetry Book Launch with Rebecca Perry

02/11/2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm


You are invited to the launch of ‘Away With Words: Volume 2’, the second edition of a new poetry anthology championing the best new voices around the world. The book will be published by Toothgrinder Press and features 22 poets all contributing new and unseen work, along with a foreword by the fantastic Amy Key (‘Isn’t Forever’, ‘Luxe’).

We are also thrilled to announce that our guest speaker, Rebecca Perry, will headline the night’s readings commencing at 8pm. Perry’s most recent publication, ‘Beauty/Beauty’, was shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize as well as being the Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

Although the event is FREE to attend, DIY Space for London requires you to become a member (or the guest of a member) to attend their events. Membership costs just £2 https://membermojo.co.uk/diyspaceforlondon/) and all proceeds go toward aiding the upkeep of a cooperative venue that has spent years helping and promoting start-up ventures.

The publication will be available to purchase at the event, online at https://toothgrinderpress.bigcartel.com and then from The Word BookshopPages of HackneyBOOKS and Chener Books thereafter. All proceeds go towards paying the contributors and funding the printing; this is a not-for-profit venture.
