The P Word: Poets, Prattlers & Panemonialists
This Black Country collective comprises Emma Purshouse, Steve Pottinger and Dave Pitt. Individually they are headliners at events across the UK, working together they have created an acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe show, a “Black Country Broadsheet” and run highly successful poetry nights in the West Midlands.
Emma and Steve both have a background of performance poetry. Steve’s fifth book a fine, fine place was published two years ago. Emma is in great demand as a tutor and workshop leader for adults and children. She is widely published on CD and in print, including The Nailmakers’ Daughters and (for children) I Once Knew A Poem Who Wore A Hat.
Dave came into poetry from stand-up, from which he brings immaculate timing and strong sense of irony. His book Poetry is Jazz, Welcome to Punk Rock will be available at the event.
