Electric Arc Furnace #3, with Nat Raha & Eley Williams

A new poetry reading series, in the centre of Sheffield, between the seven hills. Innovative poetries from the South Yorks hinterlands & further-flung.

Eley Williams is co-editor of fiction at 3:AM magazine with prose in Ambit, Night & Day, Structo and The White Review. Her collection Attrib. and Other Stories (Influx 2017) was chosen by Ali Smith amongst ‘the best of debut fiction’ for this year’s Cambridge Literary Festival. She has a small book of poetry, ‘Frit’, forthcoming from Sad Press.

Nat Raha is a poet and trans / queer activist, living in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her poetry includes two collections: countersonnets (Contraband Books, 2013), and Octet (Veer Books, 2010); and numerous pamphlets including ‘£/€xtinctions’ (Sociopathetic Distro, 2017), ‘[of sirens / body & faultlines]’ (Veer Books, 2015), and ‘mute exterior intimate’ (Oystercatcher Press, 2013). She’s performed and published her work internationally. She is undertaking a PhD in Creative & Critical Writing at the University of Sussex. Nat’s essay titled ‘Transfeminine Brokenness, Radical Transfeminism’ is due for publication in the South Atlantic Quarterly this spring, and she has recently started working with Scottish PEN on the Many Voices project.

Readings take place at La Biblioteka, a ‘nimble, nomadic’ book & zine store founded in 2015, in Sheffield City Centre. BYOB. Doors 7pm. £4 waged / £3 unwaged / pay what you can. Proceeds to poets. All very welcome.

We are committed to making this event as accessible as possible for all involved. If you require any further access information or have any specific requirements then please get in touch via electricarcfurnaceverse [AT] gmail [DOT] com.
