Our special guest for July is Dave Morgan, a writer, community educator and arts organiser in the North-West of England. He co-founded the performance poetry organisation Write Out Loud, and curates events for the Bolton-based arts collective Live from Worktown. His work has been published internationally, and even translated into Tamil for the South Asian journal Thalam Quarterly. Dave is co-author of the 1975 publication China: an integrated study, and has two poetry collections with Flapjack Press – Chuang Tse’s Caterpillar and On Not Being Observed, which was published earlier this year.
