Clare Pollard Readings
Clare Pollard is continuing to give readings from her fifth collection Incarnation, which was published by Bloodaxe in 2017. This collection draws on her own experience of motherhood, but also explores ideas of innocence and responsibility, and what it means to bring new human beings into this world.
Clare's reading on at Neu! Reekie! received a great review in The Scotsman:
'In particular, the poet and spoken word artist Clare Pollard’s set was masterful, as dryly amusing as it was tender and occasionally shocking in exploring the meaning of parenthood.' - David Pollock, The Scotsman, on Clare Pollard's Neu! Reekie! event on 28 April 2017
Port Eliot Festival, St Germans, Cornwall, Saturday 28 July 2018
