What does it mean to be a mother and poet in the 21st Century?

For this special afternoon performance, Burning Eye poets Lydia Towsey, Liv Torc and Hollie McNish will entertain parents in need of culture, amusement and adult conversation.

Burning Eye Books is a small independent published in the South West predominantly specialising in promoting spoken word artists.

They aim to dispel the assumption that performance poetry does not transfer well to page as well as give emerging and established artists publishing opportunities where they might otherwise be rejected from other traditional poetry publishers.

Parents and babies welcome.
