28th Feb 2012 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Edge Hill’s Creative Writing Department present An Evening with Canadian poet, Peter Jaeger, at the Rose Theatre.

Tickets £4.00 all

Peter Jaeger is Canadian poet, literary critic and text-based artist now living in the UK. He is the author of five books of poetry, including Rapid Eye Movement (2009) and The Persons (2011). He has recently collaborated with the video artist Kaz to produce the film Nozomi, which was exhibited at the Bury Text Festival in 2011, and he is currently working on a critical monograph on John Cage. Peter uses found texts to write through the words of others: those protagonists who have animated his imagination and left their traces in newspapers, emails, diaries, books (from literature to philosophy), and in all the countless ephemera with which the externalised inner drama of our lives plays out. He teaches poetry and literary theory at Roehampton University in London.

The evening is hosted by the creative writing programme at Edge Hill. If you would like to know more about our courses, please contact the Course Information, Advice and Guidance Team on 01695 657000 or by email
