March 23, 2012 - PRLog -- Clare Pollard headlines the Dylan Thomas Centre’s monthly poetry slot on Thursday, 29 March at 7.30pm.

Clare Pollard has published four collections of poetry, the most recent, Changeling (Bloodaxe, 2011), is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

Her play, The Weather, premièred at the Royal Court Theatre and her radio documentary, ‘My Male Muse’, was a Radio 4 Pick of the year.  

She recently co-edited the Bloodaxe anthology, Voice Recognition: 21 poets for the 21st Century, and is on the board of Magma poetry magazine.

“The poems are startling, formally inventive, the diction never less than astonishingly varied – it [Changeling] is a passionate, angry, moving, alarming, splendid book.  

Reading it inspired me to think of new things poetry could say and do; in this collection Pollard moves into the front rank of British poets” – Todd Swift, Eyewear (British Poetry Book of 2011).

The evening also includes an open mic session.

Tickets are £4.00, £2.80 concessions and £1.60 PTL. They are available from the Dylan Thomas Centre on 01792 463980 or at http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/dylanthomas
