Through discussion and readings of my poems this research seminar will consider the poetics of travel writing. It will consider continuities and departures, the role of influence (including that of institutional research contexts), the use of form and poetic constraints, technologies of travel and communication, and the representation of place and movement, both human and non-human. The seminar will trace the theme of travel through my earlier collections, including Radio Mast Horizon (Shearsman, 2013), March (Shearsman, 2017) and Aire (Red Ceilings, 2018), and in my new collection of poetry, Not There—Here, published by Shearsman in October 2021. The new book takes the reader from England into pre and post-Brexit Europe, negotiating the arrival of the nightingale, European breakfasts, fast trains into Paris and the ‘beautiful drift’ of the French landscape. Further consideration will be given to the publication of small-press titles, which has been a long-favoured mode of poetry publishing. The seminar is held in conjunction with NTU’s Centre for Travel Writing Studies.
