Launch of Sarah Wimbush’s poetry pamphlet: The Last Dinosaur in Doncaster
Thu, January 28 @ 7.00 pm – 8.00 pm
Join us for an hour of poetry, music and film at the launch of Sarah Wimbush’s Smith/Doorstop pamphlet which was a winner in The 2020 Poetry Business Book & Pamphlet Competition.
In an exuberant journey down the ginnels of South Yorkshire meet men who should have been astronauts, a missing erotic statue and language anchored in a warm Donny twang.
Sarah Wimbush is a Leeds poet who hails from Doncaster and is a member of York Stanza and Doncaster’s Read 2 Write run by Ian Parks. Her debut poetry pamphlet Bloodlines (Seren 2020) was shortlisted in the Michael Marks Awards.
