Ivan Štrpka – Mila Haugova – Marcus Slease – Tamarin Norwood – Jonty Tiplady – Colin Herd – James Wilkes.
Arc Publications’ Six Slovak Poets includes work by a generation who started publishing in the 1960s, who lived through the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 and saw the 1993 division of the country give birth to today’s Slovak Republic. Emilia Haugovà and Ivan Štrpka, two of the collection’s contributors, will read alongside half a dozen London-based poets to celebrate the sixth event in the Maintenant series held at the Rich Mix arts centre in London’s Brick Lane. As ever, the Maintenant series will advocate a diverse selection of poetic methodologies, ages & nationalities – collecting together some of the most interesting poets Europe has to offer.

The Urban Physic Garden
100 Union Street, London SE1 0NL
Friday 22 July, 7-9pm
This summer an Urban Physic Garden will bloom on a slice of neglected London land. The garden will provide a platform for artists, designers, gardeners and health practitioners from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures. It will be a place for lively debate – an outside space where a range of people can come together to explore the role of plants in science, health, well-being and the environment, including readings of new poetry commissioned for the garden on 22 July.

activate Journal issue 1, Vol. 1.
Published May 2011
activate is a peer-reviewed electronic journal based in the Department of Drama, Theatre and Performance at Roehampton University, London. The contributions to the inaugural issue, On the paper floor: exploring writing practices, share a concern with language “not as a text, but, as an event”, as Tim Etchells, the artistic director of Forced Entertainment, has aptly noted (1999, p. 105). This publication’s aim is to explore the notion of writing as a way of performing as well as the ways that performance is being elaborated through linguistic and writing processes; and in this way, to expand the forms and ways that one can “make writing perform” (Pollock 1998, p. 75). Includes my article The Inscription of Art and Everyday Life: How Being Slips into Performance.

Mulberry Tree Press: Partial Fictions
Published May 2011
A collaboration between SE8 (Nicolas de Oliveira, Jonathan Houlding, Nicola Oxley), and St Pierre & Miquelon. This collection of partial fictions is the outcome of a collaborative project on the relationship between objects, location and language. In particular, it is concerned with the translation or transcription that takes place in order to facilitate the passage from one place to another, from the studio and the gallery to the printed page. Includes my antepress collaboration with Patrick Coyle and conductor Anthony Weeden, Getting to the Point.
