About this event

Martin Stannard is a poet, and his poetry and criticism has been published in many collections, anthologies and magazines for more than 30 years. You can find information on some of his books on his website. He has read at places including the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival, The Morden Tower, and St. Mark’s in New York City, and has also run so many writing workshops and classes his head spins when he thinks about it.

For a long time he edited the poetry magazine joe soap’s canoe. There are people out there in poetry world who think this was a great magazine, and he’s not going to be the one to contradict them.

From 2005 until January 2018 he taught at a university in Zhuhai, China, except for a year (2007/8) when he was back in England as the Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow at Nottingham Trent University. He is now back in the UK and living in Nottingham.

This interview is pre-recorded and will be released on our YouTube channel at 7pm on August 18th. Tune in then and join in the live chat, or watch any time afterwards at your leisure.
