In Conversation with Savannah Brown
UCL Writers' Society is honoured to host American-British poet Savannah Brown!
Savannah has published two novels, The Truth About Keeping Secrets and The Things We Don’t See, under Penguin Random UK, as well as three poetry collections, Graffitti, Sweetdark, and most recently, Closer Baby Closer. The latter is her first publication under Doomsday Press, an independent publisher founded and run by Savannah herself. Her work has received praise for its sharp-voiced exploration of intimacy, privacy and human craving – she excels at “articulating the overwhelming” (METAL).
She also runs the poetry challenge ‘Escapril’, and has been a competition judge for National Poetry Day and a Foyle Young Poets Prize patron.
We are inviting Savannah to present her writing and discuss how different projects came about! Then, the floor will be opened to your questions. We will also have a stall set up for you to check out her books and Doomsday Press-designed merchandise, where you can empty your bank account and chat more informally after the talk.
This event is run in collaboration with the following societies: Gender & Feminism Society, Her Campus Society, Era Journal, and Arts Society.
