Portsmouth Bookfest 20×12 – Andrew Bailey

Today’s Portsmouth Bookfest 20×12 writer is poet Andrew Bailey, who will be performing at Southsea Library at 12.20 pm.

Andrew’s wonderful collection Zeal, was published this year by Enitharmon Press. He is also widely published online and in journals such as Ambit, Stand and Poetry Review. In 2005 Andrew won the Geoffrey Dearmer prize. He is also a playwright and a co-written play was well reviewed at both the Edinburgh Fringe and the Adelaide Festival.

Andrew’s performances come recommended (by me, no less!).

Andrew’s website contains more information and examples of his poetry.
