WordPool, Blackpool Literature Festival, 13th November, 2012


Poet, Eleanor Rees and writer, Zoe Lambert, present a selection of readings from their widely published work exploring representations of place. Both Zoe and Eleanor write about places and locality. Eleanor’s poetry often explores the post-industrial landscapes of Merseyside, similarly, Zoe’s recent collection of short stories, The War Tour explores the landscapes and people of urban Manchester in connection to global localities and conflict. Zoe and Eleanor will discuss the questions that motivate their work and the challenges these themes present for a writer. Includes Q & A with the writers & book signings.

Walls Have Voices features new work from Blackpool creative writers inspired by Blackpool’s wonderful and unique built heritage. Beautifully illustrated by specially commissioned photographs by photographer, Yannick Dixon. Project mentors, writers Zoe Lambert and Elly Rees will introduce readings by the project writers.

Also Eleanor Rees & Zoe Lambert will lead writers workshops with Blackpool 6th Form students & Blackpool & the Fylde College Students.
