Award-winning poet Louise Fazackerley, is appearing at the Red and Green Club in Milnsbridge next week.
Louise’s writing is based on her experiences of life in the Northern town of Wigan but she is also working on a commission, Love is a Battlefield, about her husband’s time serving in Afghanistan and the post-traumatic stress felt by soldiers and those involved in conflict.
She was recently presented with the BBC Radio Three ‘The Verb’ New Voices Award.
Admission to the spoken word event, which begins at 8pm on Thursday, November 27, is free but a collection will be taken to meet Louise’s expenses. Regular performers at the venue will also be reading their poetry.
