The Print Room hosted an evening of readings from award winning poets on Tuesday 24 October, featuring Professor David Harsent from the University of Roehampton, and Jo Shapcott as part of the Poetry @ The Print Room series.

Professor Harsent read from his most recent publication, Salt, which was published earlier this month. His twelfth collection of poetry, Salt is a distinctive new assembly of poems of varying lengths, each complete by itself and also part of the larger narrative.

The renowned arts and performance space, The Print Room, is based in Notting Hill and presents a range of theatre, dance, music and art exhibitions, aiming to stage exciting pieces by great writers and talented artists from all fields.

Professor Harsent is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Roehampton and is Chair of The Roehampton Poetry Centre.
