English poet comes to IWU

Poet John McAuliffe, co-director of the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester, Britain’s largest single-site university, will read his poetry in a special appearance on November 5, 2009. The reading will take place in the Davidson Room of Memorial Center and is scheduled for 10:50 a.m. Two creative writing classes will attend, but the event is also open to other students and poetry-lovers.

McAuliffe is the author of A Better Life (2002) and Next Door (2007), and his poems have also appeared in TLS, Poetry Ireland Review, Metre, PN Review, Poetry London, and Poetry Review. It’s a good chance to hear an award-winning poet from the U.K. and also learn about Manchester’s popular summer writing program.
