Reading for Salamander Magazine

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Salamander Magazine for a reading by poets Beth Woodcome Platow, Simeon Berry, and Valerie Duff. These poets have appeared in Salamander's pages and represent a cross-section of the solid and compelling work published there. They have received recognition for books of poetry (Platow's manuscript won the Rousseau Poetry Prize, Berry is a two-time winner of the NPS, and Duff was shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney Centre Prize); they come together at the festival to embody a magazine whose mission, after two decades, remains singular and dynamic: “to publish a generation of writers reaching artistic maturity and deserving of a wider audience alongside new work by established writers.”
