Come along to the Golden Hare’s monthly poetry night, for wine, three brilliant poets, and our (almost) world-famous raffle!

Suddenly, it is March! And just like that, Spring is upon us!

Come celebrate the harebells and bluebells, the sunshine and the green shoots with poems!

Hear Hare Here is delighted to welcome:

Vahni Capildeo enjoys cross-genre and multilingual writing. She is concerned with themes of layered memory, landscape, and deep or oblique connexion. Measures of Expatriation (Carcanet), her fifth book of poems, won the Forward Poetry Prizes Best Collection. Venus as a Bear is forthcoming in 2018. Her fourth pamphlet, Seas and Trees, appeared from IPSI (Canberra) in September 2017. Capildeo’s collaborative performances, begun during her Judith E. Wilson Poetry Fellowship at Cambridge (2014), have been inspired by Euripides, Shakespeare, and the revolutionary Guyanese poet Martin Carter, among others. A Harper-Wood Studentship (St John’s College, Cambridge) allowed her to research lived experience in Kenya, Ireland, and the Caribbean. The resulting non-fiction has appeared in Commonwealth Writers’ online platform, adda. She also has co-written and published non-fiction with her mother, Leila Capildeo. Capildeo holds a DPhil in Old Norse and translation theory from Christ Church, Oxford. She has worked within and outside academia, including lexicography and culture for development; she continues to serve as judge for a number of poetry prizes. Currently she is working on French and English material for the AHRC project ‘Expanded Translation’, and on further collaborative performances. Capildeo is the Douglas Caster Cultural Fellow in Poetry at the University of Leeds.

Vicki Husband’s first collection of poetry This Far Back Everything Shimmers was published by Vagabond Voices and shortlisted for The Saltire Society Poetry Book of the Year 2016. Vicki’s poetry has been widely published and has won awards in The Mslexia Poetry Competition and The Edwin Morgan International Poetry Prize among others. Vicki gained an Honours degree in Fine Arts before later training as an Occupational Therapist, she now works for the NHS in Glasgow. Vicki’s reading highlights include StAnza International Poetry Festival, The Lahore Literary Festival and Airdrie Observatory.

Vicki Feaver moved to Dunsyre, South Lanarkshire in 2000. She previously taught creative writing at the University of Chichester where she is now Emeritus Professor. She has published three main collections of poetry: Close Relatives (Secker 1981), The Handless Maiden (Cape 1994) and The Book of Blood (Cape 2006). She has been the recipient of a Heineman Prize, a Hawthornden Fellowship, an Arts Council Award and a Cholmondeley Award.

She was one of the poets invited to write on the themes of older age by the Baring Foundation, and her poems on the subject can be found in the resulting anthology, Second Wind (Saltire Society, 2015).
