Vesna Goldsworthy

Catherine Temma Davidson is a poet and novelist who has lived in London since 1992; her book, The Priest Fainted, retold Greek myths from a woman’s perspective. For August, the month of journeys, she thought about her old teacher George Savidis, who used to remind his callow 18 year old students, that “all poetry is a journey.” The three poets gathered here carry lyrical passports; they follow Orpheus: into the underground, across hot Andalusian roads, through foggy Venice terminals. All write with an ear to other languages and carry our imaginations beyond our local borders.

She presents, for the Writers' Hub this month, Vesna Goldsworthy.
