The 16th of our Insta sessions features Louise Fazackerley. Louise is a poet from the exotic Northern streets of Orwell’s Wigan. In performance, she explores the synergy between poetry and movement. Her socially conscious writing makes the ugly beautiful and the mundane fantastical.
Winner of the BBC Radio New voices award, Louise is signed to Nymphs & Thugs, where she released two audiobooks: Love Is A Battlefield and Bird St. They’re available together as Council House Poetry on CD or download here.
Her collection The Lolitas is the subject of Love Is A Rebellious Bird: an installation and film work by international artists AL + AL. She recently supported punk poet legend John Cooper Clarke on his sold-out tour.
Louise’s latest work The Uniform Factory was published by Verve Poetry Press on Thursday and is available to buy here.
These sessions welcome guests to join us for relaxed conversations and performances. They’re broadcast live on our Instagram account from 7.30-8pm (BST) on Tuesdays, and then uploaded to Facebook, YouTube and IGTV shortly afterwards.
