'Voices' reading at NAWE conference: Naomi Wallace
Mon 18 Oct 2004
In the final profile of the featured readers at our forthcoming NAWE conference at St John's College in York, we here introduce Naomi Wallace. Please see previous news items for profiles of the other readers.
Playwright, screenwriter and poet Naomi Wallace will read from her work. Naomi's stage plays have been produced to great acclaim both in the UK and US. She won a prestigious Obie Award with One Flea Spare in 1997. Naomi's recent play, The Retreating World, received an early reading at a riverlines event. Naomi has won the National Poetry Prize in America and her first poetry collection, To Dance A Stony Field, was published in 1995.

"A pretty startling piece of writing. It has the driving political anger and entwining of the personal and political that marked some of the best British writing of the early seventies, the vigour and mystical overtones of raw Sam Shepard, and the grace and sensuality of a poet" - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian on In The Heart Of America

Join us for an evening of live literature, with some rich and varied voices. The reading takes place at 7.30pm on Friday 29 October 2004, in Temple Hall, York St John, College of the University of Leeds, Lord Mayor's Walk, York YO31 7EX. For tickets, please contact Joanna Ingham, NAWE Programme Manager.
