A special poetry reading with Seán Street and Pauline Rowe at Open Eye Gallery.

Seán  Street started his working life as an actor with Birmingham Repertory Theatre before moving into radio. He is a widely published poet, radio practitioner, teacher, and a writer of many prose works that explore the philosophical nature of sound.

He is also Emeritus Professor at Bournemouth University where he gained his PhD in 2003. He has published four poetry pamphlets and nine poetry collections. His most recent collections, Camera Obscura (Rockingham Press, May 2016) and his anthology Radio Waves (Enitharmon, 2004) examines his
preoccupation with time, space and communication.

Pauline Rowe has two recent pamphlets with Maytree Press: The Ghost Hospital (2019) was shortlisted for a Saboteur Award and The Weight of Snow (2021) won the 2021 Saboteur Award for best poetry pamphlet. Pauline has a PhD from Liverpool University.

She was the first poet-in-residence with Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust (2013 – 2020), and first writer-in-residence at Open Eye Gallery (2016 –19). She also founded and worked as project lead for the charity North End Writers (2006 – 2020).

Maytree Press was founded in November 2018 by artist and writer David Coldwell with his wife, Amanda. It is based in Huddersfield, publishes poetry and works with a range of artists to ensure their pamphlets are beautifully produced and presented.
