'Voices' reading at NAWE conference: Ros Barber
Mon 18 Oct 2004
Booking for NAWE's autumn conference in York has now closed but you can still book tickets for the pre-conference reading. In the first of four profiles of the featured readers, we here introduce Ros Barber...
The poems in Ros Barber's debut collection, from which she will read, demonstrate her skill in isolating the extraordinary within the commonplace and conveying universal emotions with unusual directness and resonance. Striking as a performer of her own poems, Ros is also a writer of rare ability in transferring her voice - and often the voices of others - to the page, without losing any subtlety of inflection. How Things Are On Thursday will be published by Anvil this autumn.

"Ros Barber's poems have an enviable clarity and confidence, tough and edgy, but also full of lyrical turns and flourishes. How Things Are on Thursday is an honest, unflinching and hugely satisfying debut" - Neil Rollinson

The 'Voices' reading is 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
