Ross Sutherland will be appearing at the poetry night on 15th September – we don’t know what he’ll be performing, but after spending the summer in Edinburgh we’re sure whatever it is will be great. The Times named Ross one of their Top Ten Literary Stars of 2008 (also on the list? Joe Dunthorne, who Ross performs alongside at the monthly Homework nights).
He’s been commissioned to write work for the Science Museum and the BBC, has published two collections of poetry, made a documentary about computer generated poetry, co-written nine live literature productions and took his solo show to Edinburgh last year. Here’s a trailer for it:
Or if you fancy something a bit more conventional, here’s Ross introducing and reading his poem Casino Exit from his book Things To Do Before You Leave Town.
The poetry night is happening at St Swithun’s church hall – see the events page for more details.
