The John Rylands Research Institute 2017 Conference: Archival Afterlives – Postwar Poetry in English

On Thursday 29th June I will be presenting a paper based on my latest poetry project at the John Rylands Research Institute’s 2017 conference ‘Archival Afterlives: Postwar Poetry in English’. I will be speaking about the problems facing a writer when engaging with a family archive, conflict between narrative and lyric modes and using archive as a poetic form as a possible solution.
