Poetry publisher New River Press returns to Pentameters Theatre for the launch of New River Press Yearbook 2019: WHEN THEY START TO LOVE YOU AS A MACHINE YOU SHOULD RUN.

This spectacular tome features over 200 poets, combining new work from established poets like Vahni Capildeo, Hugo Williams, Jeremy Reed, Chris McCabe, Lisa Luxx, and Greta Bellamacina, with dozens of new discoveries. Not so much an anthology as a snapshot of a moment in history as seen from an array of emotional perspectives. These poems hint at the state of the sublime in a time of impending catastrophe.

Our last yearbook launch was a wild joy, and it is pleasure to return to this bohemian enclave in Hampstead. Pentameters has been going for 51 years, run by the brilliant Leonie Scott-Matthews. There is a suggested £5 donation to help support the theatre.

The show will happen in two parts. The first half will feature 10 poets giving short readings from the book. For the second the floor will open up to any poets who wish to read.

The yearbook and other New River Press titles will be available to purchase. Feel free to bring your own drinks. There is a bar downstairs too.

With poems and songs we will celebrate our way into a collective Valentine's Day euphoria. WHEN THEY START TO LOVE YOU AS A MACHINE YOU SHOULD RUN.
