AC Clarke @ The Bakehouse

The Bakehouse wins an Arts and Business Award with their sponsors the media design company Weesleekit for bringing Shakespeare’s Globe to The Crichton with As You Like it last year.

Next Event at The Bakehouse
A C Clarke
Saturday November 24th 7.00  for  7.30

Prize- winning poet A C Clarke has had three full collections published, most recently Fr Meslier's Confession, inspired by the atheist priest, Jean Meslier (Oversteps Books 2012). Her pamphlet A Natural Curiosity, inspired by Glasgow’s Museum of Anatomy, was shortlisted for this year’s Callum Macdonald award for Pamphlet Poetry. Seriously good. Thoroughly individual.
‘The writing is vividly atmospheric, combining suspenseful narrative drive with a theological and philosophical gravitas that is never portentous or pretentious’. Donny O’Rourke on Fr Meslier’s Confession
‘To the bizarre garden of excrescences that is a Victorian Anatomy Museum, A C Clarke brings a steady eye and a gift for delicate metaphor ... and reminds us of the way in which a poem, like a living creature, can find ‘the shape to be itself’. Kona Macphee
‘A collection that should be on every shelf alongside that old gardener Voltaire’ Sam Smith in The Journal
