One of our featured guest readers at the 4th Festival of Suffolk Poetry on Saturday 27th May 2017 at the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket, IP14 1ET, is Nancy Mattson.

Nancy Mattson moved from the Canadian prairies to London in 1990. Her third full-length collection, Finns and Amazons (Arrowhead 2012), begins with poems about early 20th century Russian women artists but moves to a search for her Finnish great-aunt who disappeared in Stalinist Russia. Nancy’s previous collections are Writing with Mercury (Flambard 2006) and Maria Breaks Her Silence (Coteau 1989; shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Award). She co-organises Poetry in the Crypt in Islington, north London.

As usual, we have workshops in the morning, Poetry Cafés and Open Mic in the afternoon and the featured readers in the evening.
