We’re excited to present our new poetry anthology Tipton Tales, curated by poet Emma Purshouse for her @multistory commission.
.
The anthology is tied together by Emma Purshouse’s poem ‘Figure of Eight’, which she wrote while walking through Tipton, mapping various encounters and sights she experienced along the way. It includes poems by Casey Bailey, Liz Berry, Roz Goddard, Brendan Hawthorn, Kuli Kohli, Roy McFarlane, Dave Pitt, Steve Pottinger and Billy Spakemon. Each of the poets featured have deep-rooted connections to and a respect and love of the region of #Sandwell, and their voices interweave with Emma’s to form a warm and sometimes humorous portrayal of the everyday lives of its inhabitants. .
.
The book launch will take place on 29 November at 7pm at Tipton Library. Join us to get your copy of the book, to meet the poets and to see some of the poems performed for the very first time.
