Othersyde are truly fortunate to welcome poet & translator Sasha Dugdale to a special one-off event, as part of the winter series of story salons. Currently poet in residence at St Johns College, Cambridge, Sasha has published four collections. Joy (2017) features a long-form monologue in the voice of William Blake's wife Catherine. It won the Forward Prize for best single poem in 2016. Sasha will be reading from Joy and other work. Please join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening of words in our intimate venue by the river.
