Launch of 'Where the Air is Rarefied'
All are warmly invited to the launch of my new collection of poetry, Where the Air is Rarefied, with prints by Pat Gregory, on Wednesday June 8th, at 7.30 pm, at the Norwegian Church Arts Centre, Cardiff Bay.
Published by Cinnamon Press, the collection is the culmination of a long-term collaboration with Pat. And given that it's an exploration, through poetry and prints, of environmental and mythological themes relating to 'the North', we're both thrilled that the launch will be happening at the newly-refurbished Norwegian Church.
I'll be offering a performance of a selection of the poems and Pat will chat about the process of our collaboration too. Thereafter, we hope people will linger long to help us celebrate - the café-bar will be open for drinks, snacks, cakes etc. all evening.
Hope to see you there!
Pre-publication endorsement of Where the Air is Rarefied by Philip Gross:
The subject-matter of this collaboration builds on the concerns and subjects of Susan Richardson's previous volume, Creatures of the Intertidal Zone, but the interplay with visual art has stimulated a new freedom and experiment with language...pushing her work well beyond her previous comfort zones and...marking her emergence into a new breadth and vividness of voice, a new stage in her life as a poet.
