Tim
Allen Edited the magazine Terrible Work and ran the Poetry Exchange and Language Club events in Plymouth. Now lives near Preston. Publications include Settings (Shearsman 2008), Anabranch
with Slug – a robotic pastoral in honor of Raymond Roussel
(Knives Forks
& Spoons 2011), incidental harvest (Oystercatcher 2011) and The Voice
Thrower
(Shearsman 2012), a
single long poem of 333 quatrains described by Ian Seed as ‘the fragmented bildungsroman of a generation who have grown up in a postmodern world’.  Also co-edited a book of interviews with
Britishpoets, Don’t Start Me Talking (Salt 2006). His poetry, though situated in the post-avant,
innovative and radical streams, has its roots in symbolist euphony and
surrealism.

The evening is hosted by the Creative Writing programme at Edge Hill.
