Poetry Positive with Joe Dunthorne and Matt Harvey

About

They may look serious in these pictures, but actually the first Quay Words Winter reading at Exeter Custom House promises an uplifting treat on a dark winter's early evening. We invite you to join acclaimed novelist and poet Joe Dunthorne and Devon's own much-celebrated performance poet, Matt Harvey for an evening of positivity through poetry.

Banish the blues of the darkening nights with a warm welcome and poetry of a positive persuasion. Spend an hour in the company of two positively genteel poets and prepare to be uplifted with this life affirming event.

About Joe Dunthorne

Joe Dunthorne was born and grew up in Swansea. His debut novel, Submarine, was translated into sixteen languages and adapted for film by Richard Ayoade. His second, Wild Abandon, won the Encore Award. His latest is The Adulterants. A collection of his poems, O Positive, was published earlier this year by Faber & Faber.


About Matt Harvey

Writer, poet, enemy of all that's difficult and upsetting, Matt's way with words has taken him from Totnes to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships via Saturday Live, the Edinburgh Festival and the Work section of the Guardian. He is host of Wondermentalist – Radio 4's comedy-infused, musically enhanced interactive poetry cabaret – and author of The Hole in the Sum of my Parts (Poetry Trust), Where Earwigs Dare (Green Books) and Mindless Body Spineless Mind. His book Sit! written with Claudia Schmid and Rumplestiltskin musical, written with Thomas Hewitt Jones are both being translated into German.
