The Ugly Tree - LIVE. Poets past, present and future will be performing at Manchester Central Library, St Peter’s Sq, M2 5PD on Thursday 22 February 2007. The event starts at 1.00pm and is free entry, so do come along and support your local poem-slingers.

OUT NOW: The debut collection from Tony Curry - The Noble Savage.Tony Curry has been blazing a trail through open mics and poetry slams for years with an accessible mix of urban eloquence, social and personal observations, thought provoking pertinence and sly humour. This collection draws together a highly quotable core of reasoning and secures performance poetry to the page. He never played for England (or Sheffield Utd for that matter). With illustrations by Martin Stannage.

“A rhythmic world of skunk, Es and 501s, gorillas, queens and signing on. I love it.” Mike Garry
