About this event

In 1995 Carcanet published The Exact Change Yearbook edited by Peter Gizzi, then at the beginning of his career. The issue featured writing by Gertrude Stein, Barbara Guest, John Wieners, Jack Spicer), J.H. Prynne and other avant garde writers; it also featured portfolios of new writing from China, the Caribbean, Russia, Germany, Canada, and the UK, and a CD of readings by Ashbery, Brathwaite and Berrigan. This gives an indication of the breadth of poetic interests that informs Gizzi’s poetry. He is a remarkable poet, and thirty years of his work are in Sky Burial, published in February, essentialised for a new, and reconfigured for his long-term, readership. The book includes previously uncollected work.

Sarah Hayden is a writer and academic. Her poetry chapbooks are sitevisit (Materials), Turnpikes (Sad Press), System Without Issue (Oystercatcher) and Exteroceptive (Wild Honey). Other poems and lecture-poems have appeared in Blackbox Manifold, Golden Handcuffs Review, Tripwire, datableed and elsewhere. She also writes for artists and art events and is an AHRC ECR Leadership Fellow on the ‘Voices in the Gallery’ project (2019-2021).
