Featuring Stephen Boyce
Stephen lives in Dorset’s Blackmore Vale. He has been published widely in magazines and online and has won a number of awards including the Kent & Sussex Open Poetry Competition and the Leicester Poetry Prize. He is the author of two collections, Desire Lines (Arrowhead 2010) and The Sisyphus Dog (Worple 2014) as well as the pamphlets In the Northland (TegArt 2011) and Something Persists (TegArt 2014). His work has been described as “intelligent, sophisticated and formally-assured…” and “... poignant, exquisitely phrased poems full of thoughtful observations of everyday life in which he makes unexpected connections.” Stephen is a founding trustee of Winchester Poetry Festival and co-directed the inaugural event in 2014.
Members of Fire River Poets will also be reading during the evening and there will as usual be an open mic session during the evening for any poet who would like to come along and read.
Poets who would like to take advantage of this opportunity should apply through the Contact Us page on the Fire River Poets website.
