Sophie Collins is a poet, editor and translator. small white monkeys, a text on self-expression, self-help and shame, was published by Book Works in November 2017 as part of a commissioned residency at Glasgow Women’s Library. Her first poetry collection, Who Is Mary Sue?, will be published by Faber & Faber in February 2018. She is currently Assistant Professor of Poetry at Durham University.

Carol Mavor is a writer who takes creative risks in form (literary and experimental) and political risks in content (sexuality, racial hatred, child-loving and the maternal). She shares this provocative approach with her students as Professor of Art History and Visual Studies at the University of Manchester. Her books include Reading Boyishly: J.M. Barrie, Roland Barthes, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Marcel Proust and D.W. Winnicott and Blue Mythologies. As Maggie Nelson writes of her latest book, Aurelia: Art and Literature through the Mouth of the Fairy Tale: ‘Forget whatever you previously associated with “fairy tales,” and enter Carol Mavor’s kaleidoscopic universe of art and literature. Everyone from Ralph Eugene Meatyard to Kiki Smith to Frank Baum to Emmett Till to Francesca Woodman to Langston Hughes is here, and so many more, held together by Mavor’s casually erudite, finely spun web. Aurelia is as strange, enigmatic, and full of magic as its subjects.’

This event will be hosted by Vona Groarke, poet and teacher at the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester and is presented in partnership with The Real Story.
