Subscribe on iTunesPoetry from Adam Horovitz, the poetry judge in the inaugural Bare Fiction Prize for Poetry 2014.

It seems fitting to launch the Bare Fiction Prize with a reading by one of our judges, so today we have poetry from Adam Horovitz.

Adam’s new book, A Thousand Laurie Lees is a poetic memoir of his time growing up in the Slad Valley. He moved there with his parents, the poets Michael and Frances Horovitz, shortly after he was born in 1971. And it’s evident that the Gloucestershire countryside has been a fantastic inspiration for much of Adam’s writing. A Thousand Laurie Lees is a truly wonderful book, published by The History Press (UK: June 2014, USA & Canada: Sep 1st 2014).

This live recording was made on April 30th 2014 at the Gwdihw Cafe Bar in Cardiff during the launch of issue 2 of the magazine. You’ll hear five of Adam’s poems in all including poems from A Thousand Laurie Lees and from his collection Turning (Headland Publications 2011).
