SEKXPHRASTIKS and The Luna Erratum
Join us as we celebrate the launch of two new poetry titles from Dostoyevsky Wannabe.
04.11.21, 7–8.30pm at Fruitmarket.
SEKXPHRASTIKS is Jane Goldman’s first full length collection and The Luna Erratum is Maria Sledmere’s debut poetry collection. Both writers will read from their new titles.
Jane Goldman lives in Edinburgh and is Reader in English at the University of Glasgow, she likes anything a word can do. SEKXPHRASTIKS, her long-awaited first full collection, lays out her ‘poetics of sekx, ekphrasis, and tiks’ visiting exhibitions, tributes to friends and translations from Sappho and Catullus as she goes. Maria Sledmere is an artist, occasional music journalist and poet based in Glasgow. The Luna Erratum roams between celestial and terrestrial realms where we find ourselves both the hunter and hunted, the wounded and wounding.
