Manchester Literature Festival
Manchester Literature Festival is thrilled to present a special event with singer, songwriter and poet Arlo Parks. Following a Mercury Music Prize and Grammy nominations for her debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, and a second critically acclaimed album, My Soft Machine, Arlo brings us a taste of the poetry she’s quietly been writing for years. In The Magic Border, Arlo shares twenty original poems, song lyrics and intimate images from collaborator, photographer Daniyel Lowden, offering rare insight into her creative process.
Join us to see Arlo read poems from The Magic Border and discuss her poetry, creativity and the way she explores and incorporates the queer experience, blackness, grief and love through her sublime work.
